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.

- (2018-02-02) Brian Donahue: This extension stops working over time and pegs CPU at 100+% (found using Chrome Task Manager - More Tools > Task Manager). Noticed my fan was spinning up and my battery was draining, finally discovered it was HTTPS Finder. Stinks because it was more effective on many sites than HTTPS Everywhere, but I have to uninstall.

- (2015-07-12) Jason Cady: Very useful when combined with HTTP Somewhere extension. The only problem is I can't black list a site that I find that doesn't work right with HTTPS or redirects back to HTTP. In that situation HTTPS Finder unfortunately asks every page and basically spams your chrome notifications.....

is there a way to use this on mobile chrome browsers? If so, how?
- (2016-06-24, v:1.1) Rob Townley: Provide option to exclude particular domains from HTTPS.
Need an exception list. For example the following will not work under SSL: http://www.officemate.net/omkb/article.aspx?id=37469
- (2015-04-26, v:1.0) Bilateralrope: Two major problems
I've got two big problems with HTTPS finder The first is that there is no way to tell it not to attempt HTTPS on some sites. So, when I run into a site that breaks under HTTPS, I can't view the site at all. The second is that, when it switches me to an HTTPS connection, it changes the tab I am currently viewing. Not the tab the website is loading in.
