Why Doesn't Every Website Use HTTPS? 665

suraj.sun writes "HTTPS is more secure, so why isn't the Web using it? You wouldn't write your username and passwords on a postcard and mail it for the world to see, so why are you doing it online? Every time you log in to Twitter, Facebook or any other service that uses a plain HTTP connection that's essentially what you're doing. There is a better way, the secure version of HTTP — HTTPS. But if HTTPS is more secure, why doesn't the entire Web use it?"
