    I'm wondering if this is a natural behavior.

    First is first. I block IPs from known spiders (It's how search engines like Google create their databases, by making use of bots.). I do not like when I'm making searches or when I enter a website that information goes straight to their database. They wish!

    Anyway, for quite a long time now, I've been seeing my machine connecting to this IP 209.85.227.102 (http://www.dshield.org/ipinfo.html?ip=209.85.227.102) using a secure protocol (Port 443).

    I do not use any Google software, nor was I accessing Gmail.

    I always noticed that Google IPs are blocked when I enter certain sites, due to the reason why I block such IPs, but on only on http protocol. But, why would this happen using a secure protocol? Does Google send information, using their bots, using a secure protocol? I doubt, otherwise it would happen all the time.

    I do make use of Chromium browser. Related? I really doubt, but...

    I'll be downloading tcpview from SysInternals and see when it exactly happens. But, has anyone experienced this behavior?
