Google Chrome Blocks Insecure Scripts

Thanks to the continuous security improvements, the latest dev version of Google Chrome now blocks insecure scripts.

If the web site is secured via HTTPS protocol, Google’s web browser will also check whether or not the specific parts of the code (such as scripts, external CSS, etc.) also use HTTPS to deliver data.

In case they do not, Google Chrome will notify the user and offer to either block the insecure script or load it anyway.

Via: Google Chrome Browser

    Hum… I can see so many places where this can go wrong… But since it’s Chrome, it’ll be alright.

  2. Very annoying feature, although well-meant.

    Example: I am scrolling through a feed in Google Reader (Google product!) and when it comes to a post that has Insecure Script (I’ve noticed it’s usually an embedded Youtube video (another Google product), and I click Load Anyway it completely refreshes the screen and does not show the post anymore I was reading. GReader basically started a new session and therefore will not show the previous posts anymore…

    All in all: annoying, incomplete feature…
