MGI is now using HTTPS

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) adds a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to HTTP. This encrypts exchanges between your browser and the MGI web server and reduces the risk of a malicious entity intercepting your web interactions.

Some web browsers by default are set to only use HTTPS and in order to access MGI, you had to turn off that preference. With this update, you have one less reason to turn that off.

MouseMine has already been using HTTPS for about a year. The International Mouse Strain Resource (IMSR) and the Mouse Models of Human Cancer Database (MMHCdb) will be using HTTPS in future releases.
