Google Rolls Out Encrypted Web Search Option

KirinMercury writes “Google began offering an encrypted option for Web searchers on Friday and said it planned to roll it out for all of its services eventually. People who want to use the more secure search option can type ‘https://www.google.com’ into their browser, scrambling the connection so the words and phrases they search on, and the results that Google displays, will be protected from interception.” Note that you need the ‘www’ for it to work. dropping it redirects you to a non-ssl page. You might have read this on Saturday, but if you missed it, it’s still worth knowing.
