Chrome forces HTTPS on all .dev domains

If you're anything like me your development workflow involves spinning up VMs using Vagrant or some other workflow automation process. (shoutout to geerlingguy and the DrupalVM project!) I've been creating this Development machines for projects for years now using projectname.dev as my local dev path. Well, turns out that ".dev" is now a valid TLD. A recent update to Google Chrome (Chrome 63) has pushed an update where all .dev TLDs are set to force_https.

Hike to the summit of Blue Mountain. The trail was rugged and rocky, but well marked. It had rained the day before so everything was wet and muddy. I took a pretty relaxed pace and reached the summit in about 2 hours. On the summit is a old fire tower. The view from the fire tower is fantastic. (See the Photos!)
