🛡️ Prevent Chrome from redirecting your HTTP localhost to HTTPS


Every time I tried setting up custom /etc/hosts for local development, chrome kept redirecting my service from HTTP to HTTPS. Probably because there was already an existing website with the same hostname and SSL that I previously visited. To fix that you need to go to chrome://net-internals/#hsts and put your service's URL in the input located under the Delete domain security policies section. Click delete and voilà!
