REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL
HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox and Chrome extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure. Encrypt the web: Install HTTPS Everywhere today.
Install in Firefox
Version 3 Stable
Install in Chrome
HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, 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 aclever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS.

Support FASTR for open access to research.
You deserve open access to taxpayer-funded research. Tell your members of Congress to support FASTR.
Government agencies like the National Science Foundation invest millions of taxpayer dollars into scientific research every year, and yet you — the taxpayer — don’t have access to the resultsunless you pay thousands of dollars to buy academic journals.
The Fair Access to Science & Technology Research (FASTR) Act would fix this. The bill makes government agencies design and implement a plan to facilitate public access to — and robust reuse of — the results of their investments. Any researcher who receives federal funding must submit a copy of resulting journal articles to the funding agency, which then makes that research freely available to the world within six months.
The FASTR Act has been introduced with bipartisan support in the House and the Senate, but your lawmakers need to know that open access has the Internet community’s support. FASTR’s robust support for open access will change a flawed system that rewards private publishers at the expense of scientific progress. You can help. Tell your members of Congress to support the future of scientific progress.
