Securing google calendar and writely

Too many web applications don't support HTTPS even though you're exchanging personal data and login information in the clear. Too many web applications that do support HTTPS either don't tell their users or don't make the effort to force users onto HTTPS. Three applications I like that are in the latter category are GMail, Google Calendat and Writely - all owned by Google.
(I am particularly annoyed that the secure version of GMail links to the insecure Google Calendar)

Fortunately Firefox has the cure with Greasemonkey (this is a really old hack - but was down and I needed a permanenet reference)
Here's how

  1. Get Firefox
  2. Get Greasemonkey
  3. Get the secure GMail user script
  4. Get the secure Google Calendar user script
  5. Get the secure Writely user script

Cool. Men hvorfor har du ikke bare et enkelt script hvor jeg kan l?gge de dom?nenavne til som _skal_ k?re https?
