Why does FreeBSD insist on https?

‎I think you should reconsider the tools you are using. There are plenty of good reasons for using HTTPS whenever possible.

Subject: Why does FreeBSD insist on https?

Why do so many FreeBSD URLs redirect from http to https?
What is this intended to accomplish?

This is user-hostile. Some browsers cannot do https, and there are
good reasons (unrelated to http vs https) to use these browsers.
There are also good reasons to prefer http over https even with a browser
that can do https. Https is useful when needed, but it isn't needed here.

Can someone *please* fix this?
