As this site does revolve a lot around trust (even more than normal FOSS projects), I think it would be good if it

  • Used a real, non self-signed certificate. These can be very inexpensive these days.
  • Defaulted to HTTPS. When entering through http://,  automatically redirect to https://.
  • Used secure (https-only) cookies. So if you accidentally type http://, your cookies wont go over the clear and your session can be hijacked.

Hey, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, we need to show we have the right stance on security/privacy and don't see it as a low-priority issue Smiley

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.
