HTTPS everywhere for chrome!!

Thats right girls, sX has another goodie up for grabs :D I really liked the idea EFF had with HTTPS Everywhere but was saddened when they said they will not be developing one for chrome due to some gayness, so i took the idea and ran with it. So today, with much pride, i bring you HTTPS "i know the name blows". HTTPS is a chrome extension that will look for HTTPS services on any host you goto, and given how you set it up it will just forward you to the https version of the site or display a icon you can click to goto the https version. Its still in beta so there may be a few bugs here and there but it should serve you well most of the time :) enjoy!

Current version: 0.7



  1. Do you intend to release the source code for this plugin? Without being able to review it, it's pretty useless to me.


  2. sure when ever i get time. while you wait you can install it and view the source that way...

  3. I'm guessing that you've seen this:
    But if you happen to know a way to perform secure request rewriting in these browsers, feel free to let us know at https-everywhere at (but note that modifying document.location or window.location in JavaScript is not secure).

  4. For me the extension automatically forwards me to the https site regardless of the setting.

  5. Do you happen to know if it blocks hacks like Firesheep? (

  6. Thanks! I just started using Chrome, and I'm glad that there's an extention for Chrome now too! Sweet, and thanks!
