Chrome 25, which is currently available in the dev and beta channels, today gets more secure Google search –now, Google sends their searches from the Chrome address bar (“omnibox”) over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)–even, “when a user isn’t signed in to Google.”
“Users shouldn’t notice any changes. If anything, their searches will be slightly faster due to Chrome’s implementation of the SPDY protocol, but there should be no other user-visible effect,” google stated.
“Serving content over SSL provides users with a more secure and private search experience. It helps ensure that malicious actors who might intercept people’s internet traffic can’t see their queries. Search has also been moving toward encryption. Google first introduced Encrypted Search in May 2010 and made encryption the default for signed-in users starting in October 2011.”
