Google Is EVIL

I cannot connect a web browser to my new entirely internal domain because I named it and Google has registered “.dev” and hard-coded into browsers that it must be secure. I’m not screwing with TLS infrastructure.

Now I need to rename the whole thing. “.test” is supposed to be reserved. We’ll see.

Many thanks Daryl Koopersmith at Medium for the article explaining why my browsers were complaining about SSL connections and switching “http” to “https” on their own – including Microsoft browsers.
