  7. 7. Marking HTTP As Non-Secure We, the Chrome Security Team, propose that user agents (UAs) gradually change their UX to display non-secure origins as affirmatively non-secure. We intend to devise and begin deploying a transition plan for Chrome in 2015. The goal of this proposal is to more clearly display to users that HTTP provides no data security.

  9. 9. Deprecating Non-Secure HTTP Today we are announcing our intent to phase out non-secure HTTP. There are two broad elements of this plan: 1. Setting a date after which all new features will be available only to secure websites 2. Gradually phasing out access to browser features for non-secure websites, especially features that pose risks to users’ security and privacy.
