In our blog post, we describe the results of tests we conducted to measure HTTPS support on the advertisers found on a sample of news websites as well as two sample lists of advertisers.

Andrew Hilts helped get several new open source software developers set up to start hacking on Open Effect’s TrackerSSL browser extension at the “Open Source Comes to Campus” event.
TrackerSSL is a Google Chrome Extension that lets you know who is tracking you, and whether or not that tracking could be done more securely. The extension monitors all third party connections made by the websites you visit. It lets you know what percentage of third party trackers on a given page could support secure transmission of your web browsing habits, if the web page itself was only served securely through HTTPS.
This Data Privacy Day, Open Effect is proud to announce the alpha release of TrackerSSL, a Google Chrome browser extension that lets you see if websites are securing your web browsing activity.
