SaferChrome makes browsing safer by identifying and preventing security and privacy breaches.
== What is new ?==
Version 0.2.1 fixes the problem that prevents user from installing saferChrome on windows.
- Gives warnings about insecure password transmissions. SaferChrome detects sites that send your password in the clear because the site doesn't use SSL or uses it incorrectly. It also helps prevent SSL strip attacks (that rewrite the form action to trick you into sending your password over HTTP rather than HTTPS).
- Enables HTTPS redirect. SaferChrome allows you to specify websites that you want to browse over HTTPS. This might break some functionality on those sites but enables more secure browsing, especially useful when logging in from an unsecure Wi-Fi network in a coffee shop or airport. By default SaferChrome forces HTTPS for Facebook and Twitter.
- Reports site elements loaded from third-parties. SaferChrome shows the number and origin of elements loaded from domains other than the one you are visiting. These elements are typically utilized for tracking. In the next release we will enable blocking of content from unwanted parties.
== Feature requests and Bug reports==
We are looking fora beta testers. So if you want to test the latest features and help us making SaferChrome a better extension please contact us.
If you find bugs or have feature ideas, please report them here: http://code.google.com/p/saferchrome/issues/
Please note that due to lack of synchronous API in Chrome (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=54257) certain features, such as selectively blocking HTTPS mixed content and complete blocking of certain domains can't be implemented fully.
