    The Google Chrome web browser displays a "secure" indicator in green in the browser's address bar when you open a site that supports the HTTPS protocol. For sites with extended certificates, Chrome displays the company name instead, and the protocol https: is displayed in green as well.

    A new blog post on the Chromium blog reveals that Google plans to change how the Google Chrome browser indicates secure and non secure websites to the user.

    Chrome, and pretty much any browser out there, displays positive indicators right now when you connect to sites and services that support HTTPS.

    If a site uses HTTPS, the user is informed about that. Chrome displays the secure indicator, a lock icon, and color codes the indicators in green to highlight that the connection to the site is secure.

    Google plans to turn things around completely in the near future. The company plans to omit positive indicators in the future and instead highlight non secure connections to the user.
