Automatically switched to secure HTTP version of webpages if possible.
An extension to automatically use HTTPS protocol when possible. When the extension is enabled, it switches insecure "HTTP" pages to the secure "HTTPS" alternative when the server supports secure communication. In oppose to the popular HTTPS Anywhere extension, this one does not have a predefined set of sites that support HTTPS protocol, instead, it evaluates the unsecured site upon the first usage. Source code and bug tracker are available at: https://github.com/balvin-perrie/http-to-https Notes: 1. If automatic switching to HTTPS protocol for a website causes it to look broken, use the toolbar popup to add the page or the hostname to the exception list and reload the page in the HTTP protocol. 2. You can place your mouse over the toolbar button to get more info about the color codes that this extension uses. Also, make sure to read the FAQs page. Logs: v0.1.1 1.

- (2020-09-11) Brandy Thompson: Does what it says it does, it is excellent. You could make it to where it just displays a warning before you can visit a site that has HTTP only, like HTTPS Everywhere does, but it's still a great extension.
