    Hi Guys

    Anyone familiar with HSTS. Is it a good idea to implement it instead of leaving it to a 301 redirect? Any downsides? (Obviously assuming your site is on https).

    Cheers,
    S

    HSTS is complete abandonment of HTTP, right?

    I'd like to see http, https and www all phased out of existence!
