> Questions:
> 1) But: Why  can't i find it on the offical Firefox Add-ons site?: 

maybe because they did not choose to put it there...?
maybe they have more trust in their own servers.

> 2) Did anyone audited the  "HTTPS Everywhere" code?

Would you trust me if I say I did...?

> 3) Can someone trust this Add-on? Is it safe to  install/use?

As much as you can trust all the other OS/softwares out there...
The EFF and the Tor project are supposed to be good people... but who knows...

> 4) If it's so great why isn't it more  prevalent?

maybe because many people have no idea what is this https thing...
maybe because https is more resource hungry on both sides?
