In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

But , seriously, why isn't every website using SSL encryption by default?


Because the data will be decrypted by the other end? (Google, Skype etc) The solution would be a user to user encryption protocol, not user to service (like SSL). So all Google sees is a bunch of garbled characters There should be an open source project for that.
