With version 90, Google Chrome is moving the default navigation to HTTPs whenever a user does not provide the complete link in the address bar

Google said that its upcoming update of Chrome browser will automatically turn the half-finished URL into HTTPs pages. For instance, if you are in a hurry and just place a domain name instead of actually mentioning whether you want to use HTTP or HTTPS, then Google Chrome will just make the latter the default option going forward. Google will just use the HTTPs for the incomplete address provided by the searcher. This change has introduced by the Alphabet unit Google. These facts have been in practice for those users of the search engine who do not have much time to put an entire URL with the protocol. You will be able to see these changes in the new version of Google Chrome 90.

Google said that its Chrome browser will use the most secure HTTPs by default when you put a URL without mentioning a protocol in the Omnibox, and you are expecting that the website you are visiting already supports HTTPs. Google was working on this change earlier this year to improve the loading time of the page for encrypted sites without going to the unencrypted version first.

Chrome’s address bar will use https:// by default to make the privacy even better and to improve the loading speed for the users for only those websites that support HTTP. It is general practice that whenever users want to visit any website on browser and they manually type the URL without including the http:// or https:// because they are in rush and want to get their results or to visit the website they are searching in a quick time and that can maintain their secrecy. For instance, instead of putting http://google.com, the users type in a rush as ‘google.com’ in the address bar. If it was the first time of the users to the website, Google Chrome before this update was used to choose the http:// as a default protocol and this was the normal practice of Chrome browser but the problem which the users had to face that the most of the websites do not support HTTP.

Now in the recent update, Google Chrome will automatically default to HTTPs for most typed navigations where the protocol has not been mentioned. HTTPs is now faster to load the page and an even more secure and most used scheme in the Chrome browser on all platforms with improvements in security. This change will be launched on Android and desktop, however, Google will roll out this change for iOS later.
