Chrome Canary shows how secure your web browsing really is

Earns Google

If you think that your browser’s little padlock icon isn’t enough to verify a website’s security (but don’t want to install a full-fledged app), you now have a better solution. Google has released a new Chrome Canary build that includes a security panel in amidst the usual developer options. Open it and you’ll not only learn about the encryption for the host page, but the encryption for all the other connected sites, too. This is ostensibly meant to help developers safeguard their sites, but it’ll also let you double-check for hidden security flaws on any site where you suspect that something’s amiss. It’ll take a while longer before this pops up in more refined versions of Chrome, so give Canary a shot if you want to verify a page before you trust it with your data.
