When I enter a domain name (e.g. `baidu.com`) in alfred, I hope there are two choose. (currently there only the first one)

 

- http://baidu.com

- https://baidu.com

 

I know visit http site will redirect to https site.

I just want to visit https site directly.

 

The only way is to enter `https://baidu.com`in alfred

Many websites aren't set up to know how to deal with https:// so we can't assume a site has an https version and automatically send the user there.

 

However, if baidu.com is a specific case where you want to go to https://, you can create a custom search (with no {query}) for it with the keyword "baidu" :)

I just want Alfred give me two choice (http(default) & https)

 

`baidu.com` is only an example.

Or if Alfred can test https support,  Alfred can make https as default.

(I think this is not necessary.)

 

Just a tip aside, if you're using Alfred 3 then you could also create as expandable snipped for "https://". That's what i would do tho, then it would fit any case where you need it :)

Alfred actually just works like a web browser, the http:// shouldn't even be shown there as it's a red herring.

 

If a website is correctly setup with HSTS, then the site will be loaded with https automatically without redirection.

 

I'll remove the http:// from the url title in a future release to prevent confusion.

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Yes, I tried visit website with HSTS and can't dump packet at port 80.

It a good idea to remove `http://` added by Alfred.
