In Chrome address bar, HTTPS will be applied by default

The Chromium codebase has been changed by default to use the HTTPS protocol in the address bar. Unlike the "HTTPS Only" mode that appeared in Firefox 83, the change in Chrome does not automatically replace "http://" with "https://", but is limited to using HTTPS by default in the recommendations of the address bar, when auto-completing input, and when entering the site name without explicitly specifying the protocol (when entering "http://"). " will be opened ""). If the download over HTTPS fails, it will be rolled back to HTTP.

The presented change solves the problem with opening default pages using " http://", without the ability to change this behavior. Despite a lot of work to promote HTTPS in browsers, when typing a domain in the address bar without specifying the default protocol, "http://"is still used.
