    Wanted to get feedback on a couple questions related to https vs. http:
    1. do you think the benefit of a switch to https is there and worth the effort to change over from http?
    2. Do images and javascript URLs need to also be HTTPS if you switch?

    1- no

    2- yes everything needs to change over otherwise it will generate nasty user messages for the user

    While I don’t think there’s any benefit in updating http site right now, I would be pricing and including https into anything I built in the future, especially for e-commerce sites and transactional mobile sites.
