If you don’t like your Google homepage having a background image like Bing search, there is a simple fix – change the http:// in your location bar to https://

Note that you must also use the www. subdomain for this to work! A complete url should now look like this:

https://www.google.com/

Currently changing this will bring back the classic white background you have grown to love, and it is more secure! https creates a secure connection between your browser and Google so it is more difficult for others to snoop in on what you are searching for.
