Anyway, it can't hurt....although, if it actually works [I'm skeptical], likely puts one on 'trying to evade the NSA' list at the NSA.

HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project (https://www.torproject.org) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (https://eff.org/). Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Secure), but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using a clever technology (https://www.xkcd.com/208) to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS.
Information about how to access the project's Git repository and get involved in development is here (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/development).
Webmasters and prospective contributors: Check the HTTPS Everywhere Atlas (https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/atlas) to quickly see how existing HTTPS Everywhere rules affect sites you care about!

Development releases for Chrome, Chromium, and Opera 15+:

(All Chrome releases should be considered beta-quality at best because of this bug (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/6975) and this bug (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=122548) in Chrome)
https-everywhere-2014.1.3.crx (https://www.eff.org/files/https-everywhere-chrome-2014.1.3.crx) ("belated new year's" beta)
https-everywhere-2013.10.16.crx (https://www.eff.org/files/https-everywhere-chrome-2013.10.16.crx) ("saturday night++" beta)
https-everywhere-2013.8.17.crx (https://www.eff.org/files/https-everywhere-chrome-2013.8.17.crx) ("more xkeyscore resistance" beta)
To install the extension from EFF.org, you will need to download a .crx file, open a chrome://extensions tab, and drag the downloaded file into that tab. If that process is confusingly hard, you could star chromium bug 133818.
