[Feature] HTTPS

Right now if you go to https://snapzu.com/ you will be redirected to the unecrypted HTTP version.

This is a problem especially for people who want to login to the site on an untrusted/public wifi/network.

I would like to request that HTTPS be enabled, even if for now it is not 100%, and just optional for those that want it.

    I'm sure the admins have thought about implementing it (hopefully), but I completely agree that in 2015 it's a necessity for a website like this to implement HTTPS.

    Google adjusted it's algorithms and will be upgrading the weight of the adjustments soon giving HTTPS enabled sites more of an edge when ranking. HTTPS and non-SHA1 certs are the go these days. If you don't want to fork out for a cert Cloudflare will help you out as well as giving you some other options.

    Also not 100% is as bad as 0% due to the fact that you are letting a MITM attack from happening on the 1% of pages that you don't encrypt.
