HTTP will Become a Thing of The Past
The Internet want to make HTTP become a thing of the past in order to make internet a safer place to surf. Starting October 2017, Chrome version 62 will show “Not Secure” warning when user enter text in a form on a HTTP page.
Because Chrome has largest browser market share, website owner have no choice but to use HTTPS to settle in market. HTTPS also help in search engine ranking. Currently 30% of search result is HTTPS. Maybe a decade from now, all websites will be using HTTPS.
