ARCHIVED: In my web browser, how do I know if a site is on a secure server?
By default, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari will warn you when you are entering or leaving a secure web site. However, if you have turned these notifications off, the browsers also provide visual clues in the form of a graphic:
|Internet Explorer||Padlock next to the address bar|
|Firefox 4||Site Identity Button to the left of the address bar|
|Firefox 3 and lower||Padlock at the bottom-right corner of the browser window|
|Safari||Padlock on the upper-right corner of the browser window|
