Hello. I have a question about this "https everywhere" extension in DuckDuckGo. As far as I know, using https version of the site provides me with more security and privacy (even though there is some lack of speed) while browsing it. The majority of sites I use have "https://www.site.com
" form in the address bar, but some sites have "site.com" form, which means (if I am not wrong) that they are using http version. When I try to type manually the https version, it just redirects me again to "site.com". So I wonder: are those sites actually use https, but just don't visualise it in address bar? ; or maybe if they don't, the DuckDuckGo creates some sort of secure https channel to this site, so even if I use http version of site, all the exchange of information between me and this site gets encrypted while transfered?
Thank you in advance to all those who responded.
