Chrome And Redirects

A bunch of us saw this Wired article the other day and began thinking, “I wonder if this will screw up any of our clients’ eCommerce sites?”

After all, a LOT of eCommerce sites went with redirects to reduce their PCI scope, so there is a big potential here for issues if Google does not get this right.  And if Chrome gets this capability, you know that Edge, Firefox, Safari and the like will not be too far behind in implementing their own version.

I know that Google is saying that it is for dealing with only “sketchy” sites.  But is a checkout redirect going to be treated as “sketchy” once Chrome gets this update?

Should prove interesting once this new version of Chrome hits the streets.  Probably ought to give your eCommerce developers a heads up on this and get them testing your site once this new release is out.
