download and use this , problem solved. The idea of using "secure" google is laughable as they store and track all your searches anyways, use this instead. While you are at it, delete your facebook page and your twitter account.
Most people do not want encryption or security, they just want to think they have it. And in my experience, the less a person is tech savvy the more laughable their attempts at online security are. like, "does it really matter how crazy your encryption is if you are posting that you are on the way to the mall on twitter? Yeah, don't want hackers picking up that gem before it posts publicly for everyone to see".

i currently am testing https everywhere,
have done some testing on tor
and can produce "telescoped" encrypted hops,
HTTPS is a way for users to protect the content of their communications from eavesdropping. When browsers don’t use HTTPS and transmit data openly, anyone along the path between the browser and the destination can view what is transmitted (that includes the ISPs that carry your traffic, or individuals surreptitiously intercepting the data). By encrypting the data, you make it much harder for anyone other than the intended recipient to see the content. Most major sites that require you to log-in (Google, Facebook, Twitter) and sites that transfer sensitive information (banking sites) now offer an encrypted connection. (Instead of www.google.com..., your address bar will read www.google.com...).
Limitations: Many sites don’t offer HTTPS, and some that do default to unencrypted HTTP or go back to unencrypted pages after the log-in process. Because of that, users must keep an eye on when they are encrypted and when they are not. Using a resource like HTTPS Everywhere can at least ensure that you connect using HTTPS for those sites that have that option. It’s important to remember that even if you connect to a site like Gmail using HTTPS, you are not hiding the destination only the content; an ISP or a government can still know you’re visiting Gmail. HTTPS is also not foolproof, as it is possible for a determined party to pretend to be the destination, in what is a called a man-in-the-middle attack.

your link comes up blank in my location weird,
tryed to fish around but that page wont display???
Security professionals are recommending that operators of websites offering the secure hypertext transfer protocol (HTTPS) disable a bandwidth-saving compression feature to prevent a recently disclosed attack that permits the hijacking of encrypted browsing sessions.
