Anyone who's concerned with internet privacy should have this extension. Brought to you by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It's a really quite simple extension available for Chrome and Firefox and simply tries whenever you access a page to access the page using HTTPS.
It's not always available but whenever it is recommended that you use it when available means that your connection is secure (very important while banking or paying for items)!
Chrome (Beta Version)
Firefox (Version 3)
