Google SSL Search

Google’s SSL Search is available in Beta at https://encrypted.google.com/. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that helps provide secure Internet communications for services like web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, and other data transfers. When you search over SSL, your search queries and search traffic are encrypted so they can’t be read by any intermediary party. This provides you with a more secure and private search experience. There are limitations to this enhanced secure searching, for instance, if you click on a search result that is not on https you could be leaving the encrypted search mode.
