A. As I discussed in the previous FAQ, some pages send information using both HTTP and HTTPs.
If you want to check which information is coming from each protocol, you can open the source of a web page using the Page menu's View Source option, but you may find lots of matches for HTTP because of links. An easier way to see what's being downloaded is using an application that watches HTTP. The free HttpWatch application records all the requests through a web page and lets you see which URLs are HTTP. To activate the watcher after you've installed it, click the HTTPWatch Basic option in the application's Tools menu. You'll see a screen like the one shown here.
