The connection to google is made to download their rss javascript
library to display the news feed on the welcome page.

I don't know why the certificate check fails.

I would be in favor of removing this feed again since it has been
declassified to an easy-to-miss second tab anyway and lost its original
planned purpose as push message system.
Another approach if you'd like to keep it would be to ship the js
library with the QGIS application (possible license issues would still
have to be checked).
