In March, Google made an announcement about Chrome to become default to HTTPS starting with version 90. This is because it is one of the most used protocols that  helped improve security and privacy. This is the version that wouldn’t want anyone spying on browsing habits without using built-in FLoC technology. In addition, this version improves the initial loading speed of sites that support it.
