Oh... you mean like thinking HTTPS stops anyone from seeing the URL you just visited so they can view it for themselves?..... yeah, some people just don't get that.
Well, https won't protect you from others identifying which site you visited, but the entirety of your GET request is encrypted and that's important. It means if which actual pages you view is protected from snooping unless, say, you're on a work computer and your employer is using some nefarious https proxy that issues certificates to your browser.
So your employer might know you were looking at a local news site, but cannot see that you were reading the situations vacant pages. Or they can tell you were at the Mayo Clinic site, but not that you were reading pages about STDs.
You can typically spot such proxies pretty easily though - visit Google and see if their certificate was signed by Google.com or by some other entity. If it wasn't signed by Google, you have reason to be concerned. If you're really suspicious you can check fingerprints too, but for some sites these may change and you may be better picking a small server that likely has a single certificate to check the fingerprint against.
