HTTPS Everywhere 3.0

Bruce Morton

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has released HTTPS Everywhere 3.0.

EFF and the Tor Project created HTTPS Everywhere to make it easier for people to keep their usernames, passwords, and browser histories secure and private.

The idea was inspired by Google’s encrypted search option.  HTTPS Everywhere helps secure specific websites. The latest version has added 1,500 more sites, which bring the total protected sites to about 2,900.

EFF claims the software is used by more than 2.5 million people and should encrypt 100 billion page views in 2013. If the software vendors implement the technology in their browsers, the number of protected pages views could be staggering.

HTTPS Everywhere is available for Firefox and Chrome.
