As you probably heard, Google has released a new version of its Google.com search engine, a encrypted SSL based google.com search engine, which encrypts the data the is being transferred from you browser to Google's servers. The first thing that I've read on the news is that their will probably be a problem for web analytics products solution that uers has implemented its code on their non-SSL website. The problem lies at the fact that some Internet browsers don't send referrer data between https (SSL) to http. Because of that, the web analytics code cannot read the referrer data from the visitor's headers and therefore cannot take advantage of that information. Google has been doing some changes in the way that they store and use visitor's data.
Google has also released a new plugin for browsers (firefox, IE, Opera, Chrome, etc) that their main purpose is to maintain the privacy of the website's visitors. That is a problem for many visitors online, because many of the private browsing patterns are transferred directly to Google Analytics servers using the Urchin code that webmasters has implemented on their website in order to track visitors' behavior.
I want to hear your opinion about it.
