Https everywhere is going to be EoL, so probably best to not recommend it for casual users.

DDG Essential pretty much already does what HTTPS everywhere does. So using both is an overlap.

I've been using Skip Redirect for several months now, particularly useful in gmail, where it enables you to actually go to a link when you click on it. Very handy and pleasantly low key. You can hide the "sklp" notification if it bugs you.

Nice to know this extension has been validated by the ghacks article. (y) Hope it stays out of trouble.
