Google Chrome can now intercept HTTPS requests on slow networks and gives them the old Opera Turbo treatment through Google’s servers. Privacy implications, indeed.
Zuckerberg's priorities for Facebook: "Interoperability. People should be able to use any of our apps to reach their friends, and they should be able to communicate across networks easily and securely." Does this mean they'll be bringing back #XMPP for messaging?
