Check if HTTPS is possible for images, if so, replace HTTP with HTTPS for all of that site’s images

Dave Hilditch shared this feature

April 27, 2018

We already proxy images if they are not HTTP, but:

1) This uses CPU and bandwidth (but no disk space)
2) Some networks, like ASOS, prevent downloading images in this way
3) Some networks, like ASOS, are listed as HTTP images in datafeedr but actually do have HTTPS images

So I’m going to add a new feature that when it spots an HTTP image for the first time from a new domain, it will test if HTTPS works, and if so, all future HTTP image requests will be changed to HTTPS image request rather than attempting to proxy them.
