ssl can be used to bypass non crypted filtering, but not always required for download servers since they might not be blocked. For example download servers are on different subdomains or domains, so harder to block random URI they're not aware of.

also hosters don't send finallink data via https typically because it requires more cpu power on the fileserver and more traffic due to overheads introduced by encryption. So more cost to the hosting company.

trend, maybe for people who have something to hide? or who are suspect of big brother. Still say majority of people don't and cloudflare couldn't treat VPN/Proxies due to the unknown (how many users|not knowing the are hosting those services)

I was agreeing with you and adding some more info.

I'm still using opera12 also, but its getting long in the tooth. New opera is just a chrome clone which I don't like, missing all the features that I heavily use in 12.
