Last week, I had posted a message that the Hamdata.com website was
no longer accessible, due to non-secure SSL format and data. It won't
work with any of the web browsers on my computers, but I discovered I
had a link to it on my smartphone, and the data still works there.
I was able to get to that website using Firefox just fine. Chrome is overly anal about security (which is absolutely silly since the stuff
on Hamdata is public record anyway) and while the owners of Hamdata
need to fix their broken website, it is still functional.
My website(s) are designed to work with or without https. I have
nothing on any of my websites that is not meant for public view so
while my webhost offers free SSL certs for my websites, I don't openly advertise it. I think it's silly at times that a simple website with public info on it has to be "secure" like that. A site with highly personal info like banking? Sure. But a site that regurgitates public information? Not so much.
