Is what I get with an old browser that does not have the appropriate
(s) bit of https handling, though was browsable when the site was http
protocol previously.


What are these new protocols? Have they just been introduced?


The security (s suffix) coding-decoding handshake algorithm of old
browsers handling https is considered too crackable these days by dark
actors. Fair enough for banking stuff, but why any crooks would be
interested in the details of my casual browsing I don't know.

So they know what to sell you.
remember these days all commercial consumer marketing is run by crooks.
