How many of us travel and use wireless networks at hotels, airports or even the local Starbucks or McDonalds? Well when you do searches on Google or any other search engine, what you search for is easy prey for sniffers and people browsing the same wireless network to pick up and see. So if you are looking to hide your Internet searches from the masses or search the web securely then this should be of peak interest to you.
Enter Google SSL Search, at the beginning of the week Matt Cuts posted his thoughts on Google SSL Search and highlighted it to the masses.
With searching on https://www.google.com you can ensure that all of your searches are encrypted and this adds another layer of privacy when doing searches. Combine this with Incognito Mode of Google Chrome or the Private Browsing Mode of FireFox for even an even more secure search experience.
Now go out there and hide your Internet searches while on an unencrypted Wi-Fi network.
