Last month I touched on HTTP/HTTPS and protocol relative hyperlinks. At the time I was kind of amazed how I’d not come across it before, but this month I’ve come across event more reading on the subject of HTTPS in post titled Living with HTTPS.
The post is written from a security/protocol perspective, and it’s probably not as practical for day to day development as knowing about protocol relative hyperlinks, but it’s all good information for web developers to know, even if they don’t retain all of it. Information like an understanding of HSTS is useful to know, even if it's not something you're going to use every day.
The comment near the end is scarily accurate: "If you've reached this far and have done all of the above, congratulations: you're in the top 0.1% of HTTPS sites. If you're getting bored, this is a reasonable point to stop reading: everything else is just bonus points from now on."
