Thanks Patrick

I'll pester you just one more time.
I've included links to two tests below:
The first, a Google png file using https, the second is just the same file with straight http.
Comparing the "Bytes In" for both there is an 8K difference. Can I conclude the bytes transferred for the encrypted version of png file is 8K larger than the un-encrypted version? HTTPS
Notice "Bytes In" at 30K, but in the Request Details 21.6K.
Notice "Bytes In" at 22K, but in the Request Details the size remains 21.6K, which seems completely reasonable to me.

21.6K is the actual size reported by other browser "network" tools for the png file from Google.
