    The biggest benefit to going HTTPS is that Google Chrome will soon mark non HTTPS sites as explicitly not secure. It’s a good idea to just do it.

    The Chrome deadline is July if I remember right.

    Not really. Lots of people don't use chrome. Chrome is hardly secure in itself.
    SSL can be defeated in near real time

    So it is an improvement but not as much as you might think.
    In some ways it is worse as it givers a false sence of security.

    It is Google itself that will start to flag sites as non https. There is a push to make the entire internet https and eventually all browsers and search engines are going to ding sites that are not. The same goes for responsive. Google now hurts SEO on sites that are desktop only so many of our great posts no longer show up very well in search results. Both the lack of responsive and https are going to hurt this site.

    I don't use google. neither do a growing list of people I work with

    That said SSL doesn't hurt but it is not the remedy people think it is.
