http rather than https

In the URL that GSA SER sends to Google I have found that the protocol was HTTP not HTTPS. However, today, I think that all the clients send their request to the https version of google not the http version of google. There is a reason for that?

For instance:

http://www.google.com/sorry/index?continue=http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Subscribe%20to%20this%20blog%20by%20email%22%20%22Post%20Comment%22%20tamperers%20Name%20Email%20%22Website%20%28optional%29%22%20%22Receive%20email%20when%20someone%20replies%22&as_qdr=all&filter=0&num=100&complete=0&q=EgTE9dq8GNGG9ucFIhkA8aeDS8FvVfKsLNy_QPVo3svJ1BMSCSmaMgFy

    We got a "complain" that http would trigger google to ban the IP/proxy more often. Any modern browser would use https anyway due to the http-header-updates received.

    So it seems logical to me as well to change it https in order to simulate browser behavior better.
