Gmail finally gets persistent encryption

July 28, 2008

If you choose the new "always use https" option on the settings page, Gmail will force https, even if you try to load the http page; this should have been the default behavior of the service from day one.

I was heretofore forcing https through a homegrown Greasemonkey script that simply replaced the non-secure URI with the secure one.
