Make it easy for users to add a hostname to the ruleset in Firefox
There are some hostnames which I always want to access using HTTPS and they're not part of the HTTPS-E ruleset. I'd like the ability to easily add them. I'm not suggesting a complete GUI for editing all aspects of rulesets. If it was merely possible to rewrite "http://www.some.host.com/" to "https://www.some.host.com/" I think that would cover at least 90% of real-world scenarios (certainly all of mine).
The current process for doing this seems to be intended for developers, rather than users. https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/rulesets tells me I need to:
- Learn the HTTPS-E XML format
- Install Python
- Install git and checkout the HTTPS-E repository
- Find the make-trivial-rule Python script there
In addition to that, I need to find where this ruleset file is actually stored. The page mentions it for Firefox, but not for Chrome.
I could do all that, but it seems easier to just type "https://", so I don't bother. If HTTPS-E could easily do this it would be significantly more useful.
