Sneaky Ads in Email Inbox

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google,Microsoft,Web     # , , ,     πŸ—¨ One Comment

There was a time, not so long ago, when a sizeable portion of online advertising was a slimy business. Websites had popups, pop-unders, hidden click layers, gateway pages, and many more tricks we have forgotten about. That’s a good thing that we can’t remember so many of those deceptive practices.

When I started this site decades ago, I followed the usual path at that time to launch sites, shared hosting.

With Chrome version 62 arriving next month Google will begin making good on the promise of warning users when they land on non-secure (non-SSL, non-TLS) sites.
