onion everywhere

More and more websites are offered both via HTTP(S) and onion service:

But since onion addresses are not human-meaningful, few people always replace onion with HTTP(S), even in Tor Browser.

Since HTTPS Everywhere is already in Tor Browser, how about creating Onion Everywhere Rulesets to auto-redirect users to .onion sites instead of HTTP(S)?

This was the goal of Darkweb-Everywhere but as mentioned in its README file the introduction of extension signing finished it. Its rules are still usable so maybe it can be somehow be merged into HTTPS Everywhere?

Very nice! Works as advertised.

I don't think it should be merged into HTTPS Everywhere upstream, since it's pretty useless without Tor Browser. (Although that's what the original ticket #1670 proposes.)

But I love the idea of shipping the existing rulesets with Tor Browser.
We'd just need someone and someplace to maintain the rules.

What do others think?

Forward-linking to #21952 so both tickets know about each other.

Replying to traumschule:

Indeed. I marked that one as duplicate. (It suggested to import the "Healthy Onions" extension into Tor Browser).
