[subheading]What does this mean for you?[/subheading]
- Privacy - ISP's cannot track the pages you visit on GameDev.net
- Security - malicious third parties cannot insert code into our site or track what our visitors are doing
- Content authority - by switching, browsers guarantee that the content displayed is actually published by GameDev.net
- Fairness - Network and internet providers won't be able to inject ads and profit from GameDev.net and the community
We also made the change because Google is favoring https content with immediate changes to Chrome starting January 1, 2017 - nothing like waiting until the last minute.
You could see browser notices on occasion from mixed content - for example, if someone links an image served over HTTP instead of HTTPS - so let us know if you see anything that needs to be fixed.
In the meantime, we're going to continue to make improvements as we head into 2017 - big changes coming!
