Why does FreeBSD insist on https?

I haven't looked at the announcement personally, so I might be  
mistaken, but my understanding is that Google is tweaking search  
rankings in part based on https behavior: Not only do you need to be  
doing it, but you need to be doing it right.

And I agree that if the browser won't do https, then it's the browser  
that's at fault, certainly not FreeBSD.
