All of them.

While the rest of the 'net is busy deprecating HTTP and all other
unencrypted transport methods, why is it(*) even a debate?

Security should be on by default. Make users who don't want it jump

(*) where "it" is the desirability of blocking passive surveillance,
not the particular algorithm to use.
