Gmail now has fulltime always use https option

As reported in the Register, consumer gmail now has an 'always use https'. You can choose to stay opportunistic if you want. The difference is that always on means if you try to load http://mail.google.com after (https) login you'll be re-directed to https://mail.google.com, while with opportunistic means after login you'll go plain http, although you can manually change to https.

Personally I don't see why wouldn't want to use fullltime TLS.

To use the fulltime https, go into Settings and scroll to the bottom and select "
Always use https", save the changes and off you go.
