Looks like I beat this one by a few months. SSL is now a ranking signal for Google. I switched this and a few other sites over to SSL a few months ago, while enabling SPDY and a few other things I’m playing around with. So far this has been pretty painless and actually simplified a few things. Doing this at scale with legacy infrastructure and 3rd parties however is a whole different ballgame. It will take a while for this switch to happen for bigger players not already on board.
At least in Mac OS X 10.8+ with recent versions of Wireshark (1.10.8 tested), it’s simply a matter of running the following command:
sudo sh /Library/Application\ Support/Wireshark/ChmodBPF/ChmodBPF
Not sure why WireShark can’t just prompt and do it automatically, but this seems to fix the problem.
