It now means that the entire web can move to HTTPS by default and there are
no excuses for not having an HTTPS certificate any longer. Eg. When you
type www.whateversite.com into your browser, by default, an HTTPS
connection can be made instead. Unencrypted HTTP can die now. The issue of
backdoors in Certificate Authorities still exists though, because nation
state laws permit gov to obtain CA private keys and perform intermediation.
Therefore, we also need to ensure public key pinning and validation of
per-site certificates in order to identify rogue site certificates being
generated that were not issued by the site itself. Stay safe! :)
