Click here to encrypt the web!

Today [well, yesterday] EFF and the Tor Project are launching a public beta of a new Firefox extension called HTTPS Everywhere.
Peter Eckersley, EFF

HTTPS Everywhere was inspired by Google’s encrypted search option.

If you're using Firefox, go ahead and do it!

We wanted a way to ensure that every search our browsers sent was encrypted. At the same time, we were also able to encrypt most or all of the browser’s communications with some other sites:

  • Google Search
  • Wikipedia
  • Twitter and Identi.ca
  • Facebook
  • EFF and Tor
  • Ixquick, DuckDuckGo, Scroogle and other small search engines
  • and lots more!

There is more work to be done – but this is such a good start. I’ve got mine already.
