Google Search over SSL has an oops

According to Google’s Web Search Help blog, the search giant has decided it’s important to keep search inquiries from the prying eyes:

“With Google search over SSL, you can have an end-to-end encrypted search solution between your computer and Google. This secured channel helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third party. This provides you with a more secure and private search experience.”

TechRepublic’s Chad Perrin recently penned an article about the benefits of SSL-encrypted Web searches. He also advises caution as some searches are not protected by SSL encryption and under certain circumstances SSL is vulnerable.
