HTTPS Obsession

As wiretapping is getting more and more common - or more correctly - as I am becomming less and less naive, i've started to appreciate the HTTPS-everywhere extension for firefox more and more. This have more or less resulted in two things. 1) I get annoyed by sites that do not support https. 2) If I find a site that does support https, I write a rule for it, which I then try to commit to mainline.

Of course, this have the added benefit of providing end-to-end security, preventing firesheep-style attacks, both also ensures that the content requested is the content recieved. This of course requires that the CA:s are behaving, but that is another story.
