...we're happy to announce that AdSense publishers can begin monetizing their HTTPS pages. Many websites, like e-commerce sites and social networking sites, use the HTTPS protocol to protect their users' sensitive data. If you have a HTTPS website you’ll be pleased with how easy it is to monetize using AdSense.

To use AdSense on your HTTPS-enabled sites, simply create an ad unit in AdSense and then paste the ad code into the HTML source code of your page where you'd like the ad to appear. The old version of the AdSense ad code will not work with your HTTPS-enabled sites but you can get and copy the ad code for an existing ad unit.Run Google AdSense on HTTPS Sites [adsense.blogspot.com]

They're a week late with the announcement for me -- I was working on a site last week that kept making browsers scream about insecure information being loaded from the AdSense code on the page and there wasn't an announcement about updating to get a version that would work with either http or https, so I changed the http in the script src to https to see what would happen and *poof* no more browsers crying about not everything being encrypted.

HTTPS should encrypt the data, not provide the data to an outside company with a mantra of "make a few more cents". Do you really want your customer, almost to-be, to be distracted with special interest ads from perhaps your competitors, just before they click "Complete Order"? Is there end to this?

@blend27. you are assuming that https is used only on e-commerce sites.

Ideally, site that requires login, or any page that needs to know whether a user is logged in or not, should use an encrypted connection to prevent session stealing.
