Chrome to force .dev domains to HTTPS via preloaded HSTS

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Mattias Geniar:

A lot of (web) developers use a local .dev TLD for their own development. … In those cases, if you browse to http://site.dev, you’ll be redirect[ed] to https://site.dev, the HTTPS variant.
That means your local development machine needs to;

Be able to serve HTTPs
Have self-signed certificates in place to handle that
Have that self-signed certificate added to your local trust store (you can’t dismiss self-signed certificates with HSTS, they need to be ‘trusted’ by your computer)

This is probably generally A Good Thing™, but it is a little obnoxious to be forced into it on Chrome. They knew exactly what they were doing when they snatched up the .dev TLD. Isn’t HSTS based on the entire domain though, not just the TLD?
