Protecting users from insecure downloads in Google Chrome
https://security.googleblog.com/2020/02/protecting-users-from-insecure_6.html

“Over the course of 2020, Google’s Chrome browser will block all HTTP downloads started on HTTPS pages, also known as mixed content. Chrome 81, scheduled for release in March 2020, will print console warnings about mixed content. Over the following months, in Chrome 82 through Chrome 85, the browser will warn about and then block mixed content downloads of executables, archives, disk images, images, audio, video, and text. Chrome, 86, scheduled for release in October 2020, will block all mixed content downloads.”

Why not let us be the judge? Been there, done that – IE/ActiveX and Trusted Sites.
