We've just finished uploading a new version Panic Mode. This update has several small improvements and bug fixes that were long overdue. Underneath it is still the same, lightweight security extension we have all learned to trust and love.
Panic Mode is a simple security extension for Chrome, which forces all HTTP requests to get encrypted. This is useful in situations where you are not sure what the web applications you visit do and you want to make that you cannot get side-jacked. All traffic is automatically forced to use encryption and not even a single HTTP request is spared to leak out.
The side-effect of this is that a lot of apps will appear broken because they do not support HTTPS fully. Better safe than broken is what we say.
