Questioning Google’s motives re the push to HTTPS

My theory: Google ad revenue (especially in display ads) is affected by ad-injecting and ad-replacing browser extensions and proxies. It’s much harder to do this on HTTPS sites, hence the push.

Not that HTTPS is evil, and it’s easy/free to have it, but the financial incentive exists.
