HTTPS Everywhere - A Browser Extension That Encrypts Your Communications With Many Websites That Offer HTTPS But Still Allow Unencrypted Connections


A browser extension that encrypts your communications with many websites that offer HTTPS but still allow unencrypted connections.

Getting Started
Get the packages you need and install a git hook to run tests before push:
bash install-dev-dependencies.sh
Run the ruleset validations and browser tests:
bash test.sh
Run the latest code and rulesets in a standalone Firefox profile:
bash test/firefox.sh --justrun
Run the latest code and rulesets in a standalone profile for a specific version of Firefox:
FIREFOX=/path/to/firefox bash test/firefox.sh --justrun
Run the latest code and rulesets in a standalone Chromium profile:
bash test/chromium.sh --justrun
Run the latest code and rulesets in a standalone Tor Browser profile:
bash test/tor-browser.sh path_to_tor_browser.tar.xz
Build the Firefox (.xpi) & Chromium (.crx) extensions:
bash make.sh
Both of the build commands store their output under pkg/.
