Chrome will take a further step in HTTPS security in Chrome 90.The change will impact the Chrome Omnibox —the name Google uses to describe the Chrome address (URL) bar. In current versions, if the user types an incomplete URL into the Chrome Omnibox, Chrome will load the domain via HTTP. Typing in example.com, for instance, will take the user to http://example.com. But this will change, starting with v90, the Omnibox will load all domains where the domain was left out via HTTPS, with an "https://" prefix instead.
