New FireFox Plugin Helps Secure Your Privacy
« on: June 18, 2010, 07:25:24 pm »
In light of the immoral decision made in many lands to spy on your web activities we have no choice it seems but to look at methods to disrupt such dictatorial measures and this is a step towards such disruption.

Quote
HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites.
Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS

The plugin currently works for:

Google Search, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Paypal, EFF, Tor, Ixquick,  and many other sites


There is no 100% certain way of protecting your privacy and faced with this realisation another method is necessary to make sure that those who seek to steal your privacy have to work hard to do so and this plugin surely ensures that those who seek to spy on you are made to work. Lets hope more organisations add their names to the supported sites list.
