We have been receiving complaints from WordPress users about problems with Chrome Beta v44. Symptoms include redirecting WordPress sites (including sites that do not have an SSL installed) to https://, regardless of their settings.


This was probably intended as a security improvement, to suggest HTTPs to the server wherever possible. Unluckily, it's breaking WordPress and other web server installations all over the web.

When the user’s browser is rolled back to previous version 43 – the issue is no longer present. 

The Chrome developers are aware of the issue and have already pushed an update.

However, until a patch is rolled out, a large amount of WordPress sites will appear to be insecure in Chrome. Chances are good that they will push out a bug fix earlier because of the growing number of complaints.

For now, if you experience the same issue, just uninstall the beta version and reinstall the stable one. Here you can follow the ongoing case: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=505268
