So, you've probably noticed that chrome on mobile shows you 'articles for you' now when you open a new tab. The other day i noticed tons of referral traffic coming from googleapis.com domain – which I then tracked down to being this 'articles for you' thing.
So, they linked one recent article that was posted on my site – but none prior and none of the 3-4 afterwards.
I'm seeing some traffic to another article I wrote yesterday, but literally less than 10 from that referral domain.
My site had an article listed in chrome's "Articles for you" / "suggested content"
I’m the kind of chrome user that is used to quickly navigate by entering the first or the first two letters of an URL in chrome and hitting enter.
Since the last update though, Google kind of screwed up my navigation ability by prioritizing search instead of URLs I regularly use. Let’s say I type “s” to get on StackOverflow… It works fine as long as I don’t search for something starting with “s”. If I search for “Soldering Iron” I need to then remove the search in order to navigate quickly again.
I tried to search for a flag and in the options, but honestly, there are so many and their description is so evasive that I don’t have a clue.
I don’t want to disable the Omnibox, I just want to reverse the order of chrome’s autocomplete suggestions: URL first. Search after.
When you open up Chrome’s DevTools and switch to the Security Tab you’ll see the message
This request does not comply with Chrome's Certificate Transparency policy. on some origins. (Example:
https://de.ioam.de when you visit
I know the concept of Certificate Transparency in general but I neither know what
Chrome's Certificate Transparency policy is nor do I know what the impact of this statement is.
Obviously Chrome establishes the https connection to this host, but what’s wrong here?
Will https connections to affected origins be blocked in the future?
Chrome’s password manager allows for users to view their saved passwords on passwords.google.com. The saved passwords can be viewed on different devices as long as the user logs into their Google account. So, these passwords must be stored in a Google database. Is it known as to whether the passwords are encrypted in this database, so that Google wouldn’t be able to know what your account passwords are?
What does clicking the word “

This has been a topic that's been ticking the back of my mind now for quite some time.
Amazon uses symantec cert for the product images that we show on our site.
And google is scheduled (April 17 Chrome update 66) to deem unsecure any site using Symantec certs issued before 2016.
So what will really happen when Chrome update 66 kicks in?
Has Amazon updated their certs? If so, why do we see the images-na.ssl-images-amazon warnings in our browser inspects?
And what exactly dose…
Thoughts on Chrome’s Plan to Distrust Symantec Certificates
