When navigating throughout SE, can't the protocol be carried over, based on the previous page visited?
I know in Rails (which SE is not written in), you can link to sites as
//example.com, which will use the protocol from the originating page. I wonder if the same can be done for SE.
- Visit StackOverflow as HTTPS
- Chat and meta links in the navbar
- Meta links in sidebar
- Unaffected: careers link in navbar
- Visit SO chat as HTTPS
- Tags in room description
- Unaffected: all other links (excluding starred items)
