In keeping with Google's push to have all sites move to https:// ( HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure ), as well as to help ensure that the site remains safe and secure to use,

I thought it stood for HedgehogType Thought-Provoking Sarcasm.

Might that be why I've had messages pop up lately saying "unexplained-mysteries.com wants to send you notifications" and "To ensure you get the maximum experience, this site uses cookies"?

I suspect you've always had those messages Vlad. Or rather... you had them years ago, clicked on "OK", and then never saw them again.

By switching to HTTPS, your browser thinks that is is a different brand new never-visited website, so it prompts you again. The "allow notifications" option permits Saruman to pop up all those messages about "so-and-so has quoted you in a thread" etcetera. (He writes them all out by hand, you know ? ).

Yes, that was what I was suspecting.

In the UK, our websites have Biscuits, rather than Cookies ! :)

But I agree with third_eye; cakes would be nice occasionally.

Believing nonetheless in cookies!  I've never seen one either come to think of it.  Is there some kind of cookie conspiracy?

I still can't figure out why all of a sudden a search engine has authority over the whole Internet now

See....the reason you don't know the truth is because you don't want to know....and you probably don't really want to know...trust me!

Seemples.

Back in the late 1990's, Google where the ONLY ones to actually believe in the World Wide Web, and to take searching seriously. Everybody else at the time - Lycos, Yahoo etc - used a primitive algorithm that produced more spam than meaningful search results. Indeed, many search results merely resulted in "directory listing" websites. (e.g. websites that just show a list of OTHER websites, many of which would ALSO be just lists of websites). The WWW was dying !

Had Google not intervened, it is entirely possible that the WWW would have remained a curiosity not used outside of academic and librarian circles. !

It's ranking alorithm actually produced meaningful results, and filtered out most of the keyword-packed spammy websites.
