Google has today started rolling out their new encrypted search feature to some chrome users, enabling them to have end-to-end encrypted searches between their computer and Google search.
The encrypted search service has been available for some time in beta by visiting a specific URL but its the first time Google has started redirecting users directly to the new secure search page. Using the new SSL search helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third parties.
“running an experiment with some percentage of Chrome 14 users where we send them to SSL search. The experience is meant to be completely comparable feature-wise to non-SSL search. It is independent of the Chrome 14 installation.”
