Mozilla Firefox 17 To Force HTTPS

The next version of the Mozilla Firefox browser will include a feature to force secure (HTTPS) connections to certain listed sites. Google's Chrome browser currently forces secure connections to domains (Gmail, etc), and some others. This feature is also already available via the "HTTPS Everywhere" plugin for both Firefox and Chrome, but it's nice to see the feature being "baked in" to the browsers. An HTTPS connection to a web site can be more secure as the data being sent back and forth is encrypted (scrambled), making it harder for the bad guys to snoop.
