to stop snooping eyes from viewing what you’re doing.
Well you could use the HTTPS Everywhere Firefox plugin by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The idea is simple. You go to a web site, like http://www.google.com , and if there is a secure version (say https://www.google.com), you’ll be automatically redirected to it.
If you don’t want your employer viewing your Google search, or Twitter, it might work for you.
The 0.2.2 release of HTTPS Everywhere currently has support for the following 27 web sites:
Amazon, DuckDuckGo, EFF, Facebook, GMX, Google, GoogleAPIs, GoogleServices, Identica, Ixquick, Live, Mail.com, Meebo, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nederland, NYTimes, PayPal, Scroogle, Torproject, Twitter, WashingtonPost, Wikipedia, WordPress, zGentooBugzilla, zNoisebridge, Zoho
