Google adds HTTPS-only browsing to Chrome

Google has quietly released a pre-beta version of Google Chrome 2.0 with a new HTTPS-only browsing mode.

The new feature lets users add "force-https to your Google Chrome shortcut" to only load Web sites with valid security certificates.   "Sites with SSL certificate errors will not load," the company explained.

The newest Chrome release also updates the WebKit and V8 JavaScript engines, offers a better implementation for SafeBrowsing (malware/phishing protection), and new code for the HTTP network protocol.

Google's release notes provide more detail on the changes.
