Hello friends,

In my project, I am considering using Http GET method to send some important information (I know this not why we should be using GET but that us another issue). I will be sending this information over SSL.

My question is, will the browser encrypt query-string information before sending it over the wire?

Thanks in the anticipation, any reference link is highly appreciated.
