Google Chrome Extension #16: Cite This For Me: Web Citer
If you do want the extra security, though, you can also enable “encrypt all sites,” which will automatically block any unencrypted requests to your browser. HTTPS Everywhere is a simple security extension that does exactly what it says on the tin. Whenever you connect to a website over an unsecure connection — meaning regular HTTP — the extension checks if the website offers an HTTPS connection and forces it to use that instead. There’s a built-in password generator that creates unique secure passwords for each new service or website you register for.
- In many instances — as in this week’s breach with Mega — an extension gets compromised after someone with legitimate rights to alter its code gets phished or hacked.
- In either scenario, soft download hacked or backdoored extensions can present a nightmare for users.
- In other cases, control and ownership of an established extension may simply be abandoned or sold to shady developers.

NoScript is compatible with all the Chromium browsers we tested it on, obviously including Google Chrome and Chromium, but also Brave, Opera and Vivaldi . A list of websites is automatically included in the “trusted” category, for which nothing is blocked. Finally, you can manually add sites to the untrusted category, which by default blocks everything mentioned above. Of course, exactly what is blocked in these categories can be tweaked and changed, giving you a lot of direct control over the process. Although HTTPS Everywhere won’t help you with websites that don’t offer secure connections at all, this is an increasingly rare thing to encounter.
