Google HTTP Search – Yes, It’s Still Possible

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

It’s debatable how useful this trick might be (especially from a security or privacy standpoint,) but it’s still an interesting trick.

Google began to implement SSL on its search engine back in 2010. First on its own domain name, then as a mandatory feature for logged in Google users, and after a while for all users on the main Google Search website. Workarounds to use HTTP instead of HTTPS on Google Search existed ever since the company began implementing HTTPS on its properties but lately most of them were either retired by Google or switched to use HTTPS instead.
