Tracking protection, HTTPS

Hello, I would like to ask:

1. If the browsers now are offering tracking protection, do we need add ons for tracking protection (ex.: privacy badger)?

2. If I can see myself the HTTPS at the sites that I am visiting and change it if necessary, what is HTTPS Everywhere is offering more, do I need it?

I was thinking that now with Mozilla Firefox, I don't need add ons.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Jack, good questions.

On #1, Firefox uses lists from Disconnect, which is a different anti-tracking extension. Since Privacy Badger uses its own lists, it may protect against different privacy threats. Whether that is worth the occasional pain of broken pages is difficult to say: if you want to manage the least number of exceptions, then you might just stick with the built-in feature rather than supplementing it.

On #2, HTTPS Everywhere can save you a bit of time and attention in upgrading your connection for you. Sometimes this leads to a dead end -- a secure connection error -- but I assume that is pretty rare (or everyone would have stopped using it by now). I think the only way to know whether you'll find it convenient is to try browsing with and without it, and then decide.
