Google has released the new Chrome 68 browser for all supported platforms, Windows, Linux and macOS. The new version is an important update, as it changes the way users are notified of the security of websites using the HTTP protocol.
From this release, Google Chrome will list all sites that still use HTTP as Not Secure or Unsafe. The notification will appear in the address bar.
Prior to this release, Google Chrome showed that pages were not secure only when they were using HTTP and were asking the user to provide sensitive information such as passwords or credit card details, for example.
This change is only part of a wider Google plan to make the web safer. The next great version of Chrome browser (69 version), as we reported on previous publication will remove HTTPS, which means that when you open a page with the secure HTTPS protocol, you will not see the green padlock.
Of course, you can download the new version of Google Chrome for Windows, Linux and macOS from the link below.
