I use SSL on any connection I think needs to remain private.

I use it everywhere it's supported.

It's required on every financial website I use (bank, broker, insurance company, etc.), but it's also available for sites like gmail and facebook.

There's even an extension that forces Safari to prefer https by default, but the developer expects user to build it themselves (from the source code he provides), thereby putting it beyond the reach of the average user: http://www.nearinfinity.com/blogs/jeff_kunkle/lessons_learne...

(There's a Firefox Extension called "HTTP Everywhere" that does that, too, but I don't much care for Firefox.)
