Chrome provides verbose warning for password fields on non-secure websites

The latest update to Chrome Canary Version (my version 56.0.2896.0 canary (64-bit)) now displays a verbose message to users where a password field is present on a non-HTTPS website.

The current Canary release defaults the Chrome flags setting chrome://flags/#mark-non-secure-as to the verbose state.

The “Not Secure” address bar warning is now enable via the Chrome://flags#security-chip flag (you can even animate it ooooh).

These will be enabled by default in the public release January 2017.
