Ever been in a Web App that seems to be stuck in the (slow) "https:" protocol? Jan has your solution: downshift! Check out his explanation of How to write a WebApp that switches between HTTP and HTTPS.
NB - when I read the title I immediately thought of this Downshifting (specially on older cars where the Syncromesh didn't work as well). I'll confess that I was not even aware of the more modern Downshift :-)
