Episode 39 – HTTPS | “Deliver some dog justice”

This episode we tackle HTTPS. What it is, what’s changed over the years, and why you should be using it now. We also touch on HTTP/2 where relevant and talk about some ways to make the jump to HTTPS if you’ve not done so already. We reference info from a lot of sites, links are down below.

Mark’s Toolstar is Why No Padlock, a web service for easily and quickly identifying insecure site content that might prohibit a browser from displaying a ‘secure’ padlock symbol in the address bar.

My track for the Relative Paths Playlist is the Dave Morley remix of ‘Kinetic’ by Golden Girls. Apollo Records, 1993. It’s cheesy and long. Sorry…

Mark’s track is ‘Decisions’ by Taylor McFerrin feat. Emily King, from the 2014 collaborative album ‘Early Riser’. This one’s going on our Alt playlist.

The music we use for various intro bits, stings and outro is ‘Vitreous Detachment’ by Origamibiro, used with kind permission.
