SSL

Why every site should use SSL

Thinking about moving to SSL, and having doubts about if it’s necessary? I came across this article from Troy Hunt, and it’s not only a good read (read the Twitter discussions about the necessity for SSL), it only should stop any discussions about SSL adoption.

At this point, we’re way past the point of “SSL is only needed for payments and forms”. Although a lot of users resent the force with which Google is pushing towards an SSL internet, we should welcome this.
