As a special, www.google.cn does'n support https

Can we delete it from rules?

And PS: In China, gov block torproject.org, so I cannot checkout the repository, any way to add https support to git?

Woah, how weird and alarming. Perhaps we should redirect it to google.com.hk?

Emm....

I think don't directly redirect it to google.com.hk

Because you can visit translate and shopping service via www.google.cn

And http://translate.google.cn , http://www.google.cn/shihui should not be redirected.

Maybe stop redirect www.google.cn this url to https is a better choice only.

I asked some clueful Google people about this. They had no idea what was going on with SSL and google.cn :/ :(

If you want to checkout the git repo from China, there's a version at https://git.torproject.org/https-everywhere.git but that probably won't help you. You could try working from someone's non-master repository on github, such as:

https://github.com/2d1/HTTPS-Everywhere.git or
https://github.com/neheb/https-everywhere.git

Sunny, I have two more questions for you:

  1. Does this problem occur for you with HTTPS Everywhere for Firefox, too?
  1. Does enabling the optional "Search www.google.com" ruleset help you?

Thanks for tipping.

I tried visit google.cn on firefox with https everywhere.And it can also repro this problem.

Enabling "Search www.google.com" ruleset in chrome doesn't works~
