Default browser protocol for Chrome – HTTPS

Chrome is the most popular browser for its simplicity, fast and secure browsing experience. In a recent blog post, We came to learn that chrome will make HTTPS as default protocol for website having SSL enabled. This new feature will be applied with the upcoming version 90. As per blog post, this changes will improve privacy and website loading speed along with security for those website which supports HTTPS.

For example, users usually type example.com or www.example.com and browser takes to http://example.com or http://www.example.com as http:// is set as default protocol. With the latest chrome update, default protocol will be set to https and it will work as https://example.com or https://www.example.com

For sites that doesn’t have SSL certificate installed yet or has some kind of certificate related error, chrome will automatically fall back to http protocol.
