Passwords are not encrypted

I have noticed after you click the login button, the XHR request holds my passwords un-encrypted. and sends it plainly over the internet.
I believe this to be a fundamental issue.
By this i can also assume that passwords are not encrypted on the server side.

It is quite simple to implement SHA-512 encryption or most other effective encryption algorithms into any WebApp. I believe this should be fundamental for any website that requires a user to login..

    You are correct a quick session of wireshark has proven i was not able to see my own password despite seeing it in the chrome network debugger.

    It is reassuring to know that passwords are kept safe :)
