    HTTPS (Secure) web sites and viewing the source code

    On some HTTPS (Secure) web sites, if I do a right click/view source, the source is hidden. On others it is visible. I thought it was always supposed to be hidden. How does this work?

    Can you give examples? HTTPS is not about hiding the source. Your browser must get the source in order to display the page.

    can you post some examples of hidden source?!

    The source is the commands that the browser reads from the server. So it should be always readable.

    PS: https(secure stands for secure connections or access to the files in the server, not secure/hidden html source code of the page)
    a blank source code would always give u a blank page
