Soon you can Google securely and privately
Google, The search engine giant are soon going to roll out their new Encrypted Google Search using SSL Technology. Which will allow you to search Google privately without letting others to sniff your search terms or search results. Which means whatever you search will be visible only to you and to Google, it will not be available or revealed to third parties. Encrypted Google is currently in its Beta, To catch the glance visit https://www.google.com/ The logo on the Encrypted Google Search page wont change for any special occasion or what so ever like the regular Google homepage. Only regular search is available for the moment, rest of the features like Image search and few others might be added in days to come.
Google Team states few reason for its Beta Label “First, it currently covers only the core Google web search product. To help avoid misunderstanding, when you search using SSL, you won’t see links to offerings like Image Search and Maps that, for the most part, don’t support SSL at this time. Also, since SSL connections require additional time to set up the encryption between your browser and the remote web server, your experience with search over SSL might be slightly slower than your regular Google search experience. What won’t change is that you will still get the same great search results.”
Do remember that Google web search only supports search over SSL, So Google image search results may not be encrypted. For more info on this you can head to the post by the Google official blog.
