Reddit is encrypted if you use the https instead of http).

But please use something like HTTPS everywhere for your daily and more secure browsing experience.

I uninstalled it again, it still breaks too many sites for me :/

Any sites in particular?

How many distinct sites are broken for you that you can't disable the extension for them individually?

Strange, I have yet to see a site broken because of it? What kind of sites were busted?

There's also an account setting to enforce it (mind you, breaks non compliant apps)

HTTPS everywhere is slow. It's the same as using a freeproxy basically, not much safer.

The HTTPS Everywhere extension simply tells your browser to use a HTTPS version of a site if it is in a known list of sites. Nothing to do with proxies, and practically speaking it can only make your experience safer, not less safe in any way.

How is it a proxy? It doesn't route your traffic anywhere other than the https version of the site that you're already trying to go to. TLS does add some overhead, but it's negligible at this point.

Not slow in my experience. It is basically a hosts file pointing to the encrypted version of the site.
