[quote]It [https everywhere] fixes the underlying default priority on every browser that makes the browser always use HTTP over HTTPS.[/quote]

According to its own FAQ, that isn`t what it does. It uses a whitelist to switch to HTTPS only for some pages on some sites, *not* as a default.

So it`s actually "https for pages on this whitelist", not "https everywhere".

Chrome bugs me. The new UI for Firefox is a copy of the UI for Chrome. So now I have to either use an UI for a browser I don`t want or completely customise Firefox to stop it looking like a Chrome wannabee.

Simple... best thing for chrome is to read set this as your home page and obey.

Chrome for android sucks. I wouldn`t be able to view IAB, youtube or any other video sites if I was on chrome.

When they have one for case-sensitive page search, give me a call. Till then, it`s worthless.
zenmate is pretty cool.but it says `unlimited data during launch` oh well, use it while its free i suppose.

MAYBE 2 `must haves`. some are just stupid. (upload to imgur in 2 clicks? Aww! the click-drag action was too taxing for ya?)

Nice, must put my Chrome in working order now that it has all my FireFox addons i need (in order of importance: lastpass, ghostery, adblocker).

One to add thou which is the most important one; i can`t see `HTTPS everywhere` anywhere on the list. Should be #1. If you haven`t installed it, do it NOW! It fixes the underlying default priority on every browser that makes the browser always use HTTP over HTTPS. `Encrypt all traffic if possible` ie HTTPS over HTTP is the correct way to do it but for "some" reason, all US based products tend to use HTTP default... Very few websites offer it, only those where it counts. For ex, IAB traffic is all plaintext.. It does not need to be, that `S` in HTTPS does not take any server time nor does it affect performance, it`s just laziness to not offer that option...


INSTALL `HTTPS EVERYWHERE` to all your browsers immediately.
