A while back, we started proxying all non-https images to avoid mixed-content warnings using a custom node server called camo. We’re making a small change today and proxying HTTPS images as well.

Proxying these images will help protect your privacy: your browser information won’t be leaked to other third party services. Since we’re also routing images through our CDN, you should also see faster overall load times across GitHub, as well as fewer broken images in the future.
