Google Chrome will soon try to use HTTP as the default.
If users do not add the protocol to the Google Chrome browser after the new update, Chrome will add the prefix HTTP and try to load the domain via HTTP.
Google Chrome browser is preparing to arrange a tight security for the users. Google Chrome will soon try to use HTTPS as the default. This will come in very handy when users forget to type the HTTP (http) or HTTPS (https) prefix. This move is in line with the efforts of Chrome engineers to enhance browser security. ZD reported last week that the HTTPS-first change will come in Chrome 90, which will be released in mid-April this year.
Currently when a user types a link into the Omnibox – the Chrome address (URL) bar – Chrome will load the typed link regardless of protocol. But if users don’t add the protocol, Chrome will add the prefix http and try to load the domain via http. According to Chrome security engineer Emily Stark, this will change in Chrome 90.
Starting with V 90 will attempt to open the website via HTTP when users omit the prefix when typing a URL. Google previously said that Safe Browsing in Chrome automatically protects you from malicious ads and warns you before visiting dangerous sites or downloading suspicious files. Google said, if you use Chrome, Your password protection is automatically built-in. Chrome already warns people when they share sensitive information, including passwords or payment card data, on unsecured HTTP pages.
