    Isn't that technically classified as Spyware? If this begins, I will no longer shop online, if they know the site you visited, whats to stop them from reading what you type or post!

    i dont think its spyware because its technically not on your pc, thuss the informations wasnt solen from you, i imagine they have a filter server which logs the outgoing/incomming requests going thorugh their network (well this is what internet's about ). tho i'm curious how they plan on ignoring/securing the unprotected passwords/usernames which also go through the http as plain text
