This means that any transmissions you make on an older Macintosh are insecure. In order to enable Mac OS 7 - 9 usage, LegacyAI does not transmit information over HTTPS. Please ensure you understand this and do not use LegacyAI for sensitive subjects.Special ThanksSpecial thanks to Alex Robb for some tips while building this!Bug/Feature Tracker
