Websites converting to HTTPS make the internet safer
Google has been pushing website owners to convert to HTTPS (adding SSL encryption to the website) for several years. This makes internet traffic harder to spoof and protects data transmitted from browers to web servers.
Currently over half of all internet traffic is encrypted, and 71 of 100 most popular websites have enabled HTTPS by default. Source
