In the wake of Google's Wi-Fi privacy incident, the company has let it be known they plan to roll out encrypted search. Google's Marissa Mayer briefly discussed the feature at Google's annual stock holder meeting. This is in keeping with the trend at Google. They recently set the defaults in Gmail to use the HTTPS encrypted protocol.
Mayer didn't go into specifics about how the feature would work, but everyone was encouraged to pay attention to the Google I/O conference next week. Whatever form it takes, we hope that it will be easy to enable. We don't see Google making the setting the default, but anything can happen at I/O. If encrypted search is made available to you, will you use it?
