I did say "deprecate", not 'ignore totally'! :-)

Here's what I know: An e-commerce site where I do a lot of business announced
that they would switch to using HTTPS. I grumped, because I'd have to use a
browser I don't like as much. The owner wrote back as follows:

I assume he knew what he was talking about (via his Web-site engineering
people). I suppose I could research it, but I don't have the time right
at the moment. I'd love to hear if anyone else knows more.
