Re: Security concerns on this site

A note about Google, and replacing your search engine: Yes, google tracks you everywhere and your information is used by them to sell advertising. There is a site, duckduckgo.com (which you can abbreviate to duck.com) which does what the google site does (searching), just as well, and does NOT track your searches or online moves.

If you adopted Firefox (the free browser created by programmers around the globe to keep your travels online secure--unlike the Windows or Time-Warner or google [Chrome] browsers), try adopting duck.com, too, for the same reason.

Looking forward to seeing WC on https. There was an announcement widely disseminated sometime ago (a year or so?) stating that users visiting sites using only http would henceforth be warned of the lower security.
