    Is there a Force SSL - HTTPS extension for Safari,
    just like it exists for Chrome and Firefox, but can't seem
    to find it for Safari......?

    thanks

    There isn't one that I know of for Safari. The EFF has an FAQ about it here.

    Being September 2015, are there any news on this? Hard to believe we, Safari users, don't have options to make our Internet browsing a little bit more secure.

    I would guess using htts everywhere would break most sites if they don't support https yet.

    Maybe i'm missing the concept, but only secure pages should be https, there is no reason for making a ordinary non-secure page ... "secure" just because there is no personal info reason behind it to collect. In the act of privacy or tracking puposes, or staying safe on http connections, thats what addons are for.

    Why would it "break" most sites? That's not how it works.

    And perhaps you haven't heard about the times we are living in? There are PLENTY of reasons to make EVERYTHING more secure.

    An alternative would be a search engine like DuckDuckGo that has HTTPS Anywhere built into its search results. When you use search engine suggestions while typing an address, it will also direct you to the HTTPS website.
