Chrome 62: all text inputs without SSL showing not secure warning

Yesterday Sucuri posted a blog that might cause some worries for a regular small business owner: as of the coming version of Chrome, version 62, all input text fields on websites will result in “not secure” warnings in the browser. This might scare your customers away for no reason, so once more this is evidence that Google is forcing the web over https. First they started by giving ranking benefits, now they are starting to hand out penalties for not being on SSL.

I think this is a good thing, as it will make the web more secure. Furthermore, as SSL certificates or not expensive, or even free, there aren’t many arguments to stay on http.
