Regarding URL shorteners. Yes they are almost a form of Russian Roulette, but you can stack the odds.

For example:
http://tinyurl.com/ltf8am could be going anywhere (it goes to Xoke.org actually but you don't know that).
http://preview.tinyurl.com/ltf8am which is the same letters at the end will take you to a preview page and tell you where you are going.

Also, tinyurl have a page that lets you set a cookie (yeah, I know) to ALWAYS preview. You can find it from their home page under 'Preview Feature - Cool!' on the menu on the left. Or you can manually copy the URL and put preview in front.

I believe there are addons that do this for you but I haven't really played around with them so can't really suggest any that way (maybe a future ep you can do?)

Although the EFF HTTPS-Everywhere plugin works well I have found an alternative way for getting the same security.

If you are already running the NoScript plugin (and you should be) , then slide over to Options , Advanced , HTTPS and add the sites you want secured to the 'Force the following sites....' section.

You will need to make sure these sites are running HTTPS servers beforehand.

So far I have added :-
*.facebook.com
twitter.com
mail.google.com
news.google.com
*.ping.fm
ping.fm
*.diigo.com
*.wordpress.com
blekko.com
www.instapaper.com
identi.ca
nzbs.org
www.nzbs.org
bit.ly

I have also exported my settings to a shared Dropbox folder and imported on other workstations. easy.

NoScript is available at :-
