HTTPS Everywhere for Firefox

Often, the difference between putting your private data to risk and protecting it can be done by using a single extra letter when connecting to a web site. The most common protocol on the web is the http, and it works well for the most part - except it is a bit naive, as it assumes everything and everyone to be trustworthy.

These days we can never know who is listening to our streaming data zooming back and forth at the speed of light; and our personal details, bank account data, passwords, and lots more, become valuable info a lot of people would like to put their hands on.

This HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension that will automatically use HTTPs connections for many sites that support it but keep using the unsecured connections by default.
