Do I need VPN for web browsing?

Do I need VPN for web browsing?
Generally VPN is not needed when you are using the wireless network because Web sites where confidential information is required should already be using a secure site (HTTPS). VPN is required when using FTP, TELNET, POP3, IMAP, and SMTP. These protocols do not encrypt your confidential information (including your password) from possible attackers who may attempt to intercept your communications.
