    Google is Pushing SSL Encryption for ALL Websites

    Here is their video on the topic. These eggheads want to see all communications secured with 2048 bit military grade encryption.

    If I am logged-in to a financial account site, then I want my data transfer encrypted, but I am not concerned about having my search terms snooped on when searching for videos on YouTube etc. Yep, seems like a bad idea for most websites.
