Google Chrome will soon make it hard to download files from sneaky HTTP sources

Google made significant strides toward making HTTP websites less appealing to visit. Since Chrome 94, the web browser has displayed a full-page warning to dissuade you from visiting an unsecured website. This complements the “not secure” label that shows up in the address bar when you try to open a non-HTTPS website. In June of last year, Chrome added a toggle to “Always use secure connections.” When enabled, that feature will attempt to switch your connection to the HTTPS version of a website if you’ve initially landed on its HTTP version, just like many of the best web browsers do. Now, Google is poised to extend that same protection to downloads that come from an HTTP source.
