HTTPS Everywhere 1.0 has been released, and the project is out of
beta. Version 1.0 includes support for over 1,000 new sites, a better
UI, and performance improvements. Click here to install it!
HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension produced as a collaboration
between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It

the unencrypted site.

The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all
requests to these sites to HTTPS. Firefox users can get it by clicking
