Disagree with your edit Michael, you're not taking encryption into account.

comment If someone breaks encryption, how do they know they're successful?
I think the question is legit instead. Take an encrypted binary file how does a brute-forcing software knows it is done decrypting it? I actually wonder why hiding documents in binaries that print them out isn't done more often, wouldn't that deceive the cracker?

Good catch, apparently Firefox now defaults to https when it can, although I cannot find any confirmation of it.

Proxies don't provide encryption though. Maybe browsers could be instructed by default (through a plugin or a setting) to try connect to https and fallback to http if that fails.
