Detects if pages are available on HTTPS and allows you to switch
Now updated with many fixes and the ability to ignore specific domains.
HTTPS protects your privacy, secures your data, and gives you verification that you are connected to the genuine server of the domain name.
When you view a page which is not on secure, HTTPS Finder checks to see if the page is also available on HTTPS, and if it is, allows you to switch to the secure version. You can optionally have it switch automatically.
HTTPS Finder is intended as a supplement to the EFF's HTTPS Everywhere extension which automatically switches you to HTTPS, but only for a known list of domains, whereas this extension automatically detects if a page is available on HTTPS.
The intention is to eventually allow the list of HTTPS-enabled sites that you have found to be submitted to the EFF for inclusion in the HTTPS Everywhere extension.
