Tailscale Plugin for Web Browsers

Hello Tailscale Community! I hope all are well.

Web Browsers freak-out when visiting an unprotected HTTP website. There are some Tailscale articles in their blog that explain how to setup HTTPS protection, but it’s complicated. While Tailscale connections are indeed secure, web browsers don’t know that and freak-out. So, instead of trying to setup the complicated HTTPS protection, how difficult would it be to make a web browser plugin (like for Firefox or Chrome) that would prevent a web browser from freaking-out when visiting a website on a Tailscale network? Or is this just not plausible for some technical reason that I’m unaware of? I mean, you already have to install the Tailscale software on the host computers. Would a web browser plugin be a too difficult addition? Thank you.
