I do not know the reason why IE team still keep this "feature" in IE 7:
1) Why should developer put HTTPS for a common image in web page? A common image should be fetched using HTTP directly because it is also shared by other nonsecure site
2) If I embed google map in a secure site, why should I use HTTPS for google content?
Although developers can write code to map URL from HTTPS to HTTP on web server to solve the problem, although users can change IE security options to enable "Display mixed content", one thing is for sure: This feature of IE is useless and annoying.
