May 17, 2018: Google is changing how Chrome indicates site encryption

Most Mac users are browsing the web using either the built-in Safari browser or they have installed Google's Chrome browser. Both browsers have their advantages. Each works well within their own Apple or Google ecosystem. Safari has some clear advantages when it comes to MacBook battery life and privacy. Chrome works better for Google Apps users and those that also have Android or Windows.

Google Chrome will soon change the way it notifies users of site encryption. Currently, sites that use HTTPS (an encrypted communication protocol) are marked 'secure' in the Chrome browser. Google says users should expect all sites to be secure, so it plans to make HTTPS the default, only indicating when a site uses unencrypted HTTP to serve up content.

In essence, instead of pointing out secure sites with a visual indicator, insecure sites will get all the attention. When you connect to a site using HTTP, Chrome will display the words 'not secure' in the search bar.

Google says it wanted to make the change sooner but HTTPS use was too low. Fortunately, that has changed:

Previously, HTTP usage was too high to mark all HTTP pages with a strong red warning, but in October 2018 (Chrome 70), we'll start showing the red 'not secure' warning when users enter data on HTTP pages.

You can learn more about HTTPS in Google's Web Fundamentals documentation.

Google Chrome is a web browser like Safari, but it's built by Google instead of Apple. It's the de facto Android browser and lets you do pretty much everything you can do with Safari, but it's wrapped up in a different package with a few other neat features.

It also happens to be the most-used browser in the world, so if you're thinking of switching, you're not alone!

How is Chrome different from Safari?

At it's core, Chrome is still just a web browser like Safari, but it's tied to Google's ecosystem and your Google account. Chrome can do everything Safari can — save bookmarks, share links, creating reading lists — but it's presented a bit differently. Some (I) would argue that Chrome's a little more intuitive — even on iOS.

The other major difference is that Chrome was assembled from code libraries from Google as well as third parties, whereas Safari was created by Apple. Chrome is also a relatively new browser, having only been released in 2008, predated by Safari, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.

Why would I choose Chrome over Safari?


If you have Android devices or have a lot of your files, pictures, and more tied up in the Google suite of apps, then you'll want to use Chrome. You can sign into Google Chrome with your Google Account and your bookmarks, reading lists, autofill preferences, and more will sync across all of your devices.


You might just like it better, too. Since it is a third-party app, none of its settings are in the Settings app; they're all right there for you to control without having to leave Chrome. I understand that Safari's settings are where they are because it's a native iOS app, but you may like the convenience of having everything in one spot.


9 times out of 10, Chrome is faster than Safari. This does come at a small price, however, in that it's a heavier user of your iPhone or iPad's CPU, which means having many apps open while Chrome is running may slow your device down a bit. It'll also probably eat up your battery a bit more than Safari would.

Are there any costs involved?

What are the downsides to using Chrome?

As mentioned, Chrome is kind of a resource hog. Its speed and excellent performance are thanks to just how much of your CPU it uses while it runs. This can take up valuable processing power and can definitely eat into your battery. If you're not using it constantly, then you might not notice, but if you leave Chrome running with many tabs open, you might notice a bit of a slowdown.

You can't make Chrome your default browser on iPhone, which really is a pain in the ass, but Apple wants you to use its browser. So if you open a link from an email or app, it'll automatically open in Safari.

Will I miss out on any Apple features?

Yes and no. Handoff works just fine — if you're switching to Mac, you can just click the little Chrome button that appears next to your Dock and away you go.

Apple Pay, however, is limited to Safari, so you'd have to switch if you want to make an Apple Pay web purchase on your iPhone or iPad. Other than that, you're really not missing out.

When their specialist kit failed, soldiers turned to an iPhone to get the job done.

Mobile browsers are not meant to be as complex as their desktop counterparts. However, that doesn’t mean that your iPhone’s browser should be less capable than the one you have on your laptop or desktop. Quite the opposite in fact: The ideal iPhone browser should be powerful enough to satisfy even demanding web users and simple enough to be accessible to anyone.

The iPhone’s two most popular browsers, Safari and Chrome for iOS, are excellent examples of great mobile browsers. They both have their own pros and cons and are free for anyone to download. Let’s take a look at each of them to find out which one is the best.

Quick info: We’ve already done an in-depth review of Chrome for iOS, as well written about 3 killer Safari for iOS tips. You may want to take a look at those too.

Before we start though, in my book there are four metrics in which every mobile browser should excel: Speed, safety and privacy, usability and sync capabilities, so we’ll take a look at each of these two iPhone browsers from these fronts.


In order to perform a speed test as accurate as possible, I deleted both the cache and the browsing history of Safari and Chrome. Then I closed every open app from the multitask tray and finally restarted my iPhone.

Overall, speed performance between these two browsers was very similar, with Chrome having a slight advantage of less than a second on every website I loaded. Scrolling speeds and zooming in and out response was smooth on both Chrome and Safari.

In addition to that, after a few hours of usage and with many apps loaded in the background, both browsers kept performing well, except just slightly slower, but with Chrome retaining its minimal advantage.

Thoughts on Chrome and Safari Speed

It is not surprising that both browsers perform similarly, since both run WebKit, the browser engine developed by Apple and the only engine that Apple allows browsers to use on iOS devices. As for why Safari might be a tad slower than Chrome, the only thing that comes to my mind is that Safari might be loading some other elements simultaneously, like its Reader mode, which renders a text-only version of any website.

Safety and Privacy

We have already written about how to protect your privacy and browsing history on Safari, and we know that the iPhone’s native browser allows you to delete all your cookies and browsing history not only as a whole, but on a site by site basis too (refer to the previous Safari killer tips link). Safari displays all these options clearly on its settings and explains what each means and what each will perform on your iOS device.

Chrome for iOS also supports these features, with Clear Browsing History, Clear Cache, Clear Cookies and Clear Saved Passwords all available by heading to Settings >Clear Browsing Data within the app.

Things are a bit more confusing when it comes to deleting specific site data though, since Chrome for iOS requires you to type a specific command on the URL bar (chrome:history) to display specific website data for you to edit. This is definitely not a user-friendly approach, and while you should rarely need this, the option should be easier to access.

Additionally, both Chrome and Safari for iOS also allow users to browse in private/incognito mode, with both options easily accessible through each browser’s menu.


This is easily were the most differences exist between Chrome and Safari for iOS. The company behind each (Google and Apple respectively) has a very defined concept of how browsing should work and that shows clearly on their apps.

Tabs and search are the browsing elements that are the most used. This is not an exception in mobile, and is also where Safari and Chrome for iOS differ the most. Safari manages tabs almost as if they were different pages, while Chrome uses a much faster interface, making tabs look like cards that you can swipe upwards and downwards to scroll through them and sideways if you want to discard one.

Note: Scrolling and swiping directions between tabs are inverted on Chrome for iOS when in landscape mode.Safari

The most popular aspect of Chrome however, and where it is clearly superior to Safari is with its omnibar. Chrome’s omnibar behaves just as its desktop counterpart, allowing you to use the URL field to introduce both website URLs and search queries. In this regard, Chrome behaves flawlessly and as fast as its desktop counterpart. It also makes using the browser easier, since users have no need to select the search or URL fields separately.

Sync Capabilities

As is expected of any modern browser, both Chrome and Safari do a great job in syncing content across different platforms, including their desktop and other mobile counterparts.

Safari uses iCloud to sync both tabs, browsing history and bookmarks, requiring almost no setup on your behalf. In this aspect Safari beats Chrome by a very small margin. Chrome on its part, also syncs all of this information by using your Google ID, but you are required to enter in all the devices that you want synced.

There is a little detail though, that makes Chrome more accessible: Safari iCloud sync is not fully supported on Windows PCs, while Chrome is widely used across many platforms.

As for sync performance, both browsers perform flawlessly, although Chrome sometimes needs to refresh its sync list in order to reflect the latest changes.

Choosing Between Chrome or Safari for iOS

Overall, both Chrome and Safari for iOS are excellent browsers. Your choice will depend on your specific tastes of course, but rest assured that none of them will let you down. As for me, I am a Chrome user on my Mac, so that, along with the omnibar on iOS, have made Chrome my favorite mobile browser. What about you?
