comment Can we trust antivirus software?
@MatthewPeters "> What would lead you not to trust them?" I would say: that these programs do not come in the form of peer-reviewed, buildable source code.

Use https; then your neighbors can only tell what sites you're connecting to, but cannot eavesdrop on what's actually being transported between you and the sites. For instance they can know that you're using online banking, but not what you're doing in that session.

Anything you can see in real time can also be logged to a a file for later viewing. Your browser history, on the other hand, isn't something your neighbors have access to unless they break into your PC.

comment Is Google overreaching by forcing me to use TLS?
How is this question different from, say, Slashdot is forcing me to use TCP/IP and HTTP to talk to them. Or this amber-screened WYSE terminal is forcing me to use an RS-232 cable to hook up to the computer. Or this fast-food worker insists on taking orders only in English. (I'm not being sarcastic; someone point it out to me. Is it because it involves a security mechanism?)
