Chrome will warn you when a shopping site isn't secure

Now it'll be easier to see if a site is encrypting your credit card info.The latest update for Chrome should make that a bit easier. Now, when you're on a site that asks for a password or credit card info and it isn't using HTTPS, it'll be flagged as "not secure" in red type and with a caution sign in the address field. It seems as though Google is using these literal scarlet letters as a way to advance its "HTTPS for all" initiative. Hopefully the shaming pushes more places into action.

A post on the Chromium blog also notes that page reload speeds have been boosted by as much as 28 percent on mobile for one specific site. Chrome on mobile now "has a simplified reload behavior to only validate the main resource and continue with a regular page load. This new behavior maximizes the reuse of cached resources and results in lower latency, power consumption and data usage."
