This is where you get the Firesheep Firefox extension from.
"This is what bugs me the most about the whole Firesheep problem. Websites like Facebook and Twitter could force everyone to https like gmail does, but they choose not to. Until now, the risk hasnâ€™t been that huge, but nowâ€¦now I donâ€™t think they can say that.
From now on, if itâ€™s unsecured WiFi, Iâ€™m not using it. Period. If I absolutely have to, then Iâ€™ll run a proxy. Yeah, itâ€™s harsh, but even the Firefox and Chrome extensions are only a partial solution. They arenâ€™t 100% and they donâ€™t work with all sites equally well. All you need to do is forget to turn them on or have an application notifier running in the background and â€¦
Done like dinner."
