    Re: Question

    https indicates a secure HTTP connection. Using an https: URL indicates that HTTP is to be used, but with a different default TCP port (443) and an additional encryption/authentication layer between the HTTP and TCP.

    The system was designed by Netscape Communications Corporation to provide authentication and encrypted communication and is now widely used on the World Wide Web for security-sensitive communication such as payment transactions and corporate logons.

    hope that helps

    The Opera beta gives an option to chose between Socket and http protocol. Any suggestions on which one to use?
