Subject Re: HTTPS project sites
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2017 18:17:19 GMT
No, I did not. This issue has nothing to do with same origin policy (which
most users should never try to disable). It's about mixed content.
Accessing a site via https can give a false sense of security if the site
itself depends on non-https content.

In the past, many browsers would just show a mixed-content warning, which
most users would probably ignore. Chrome's latest behavior (and I expect
other browsers will follow eventually) tries to give a better indicator of
the degree of security a site has by not loading mixed-content by default,
and when the mixed-content is loaded, the page is explicitly marked "Not
Secure".

The end result is that project websites may not be presented to their users
in the way the developers intended.
