Have you ever been to visit a website only to get a message in your browser window saying the site has a certificate error and recommending that you do not visit the site? I wonder how many people are scared off from this.
One of the sites I manage has always had this problem when accessing the control panel. I know there is no danger, so it doesn’t stop me, but it does mean an extra irritating click every time. And it does not affect users, just me. Yes, Microsoft has probably been watching me for years, carefully waiting for the right moment to strike.
Anyway, today I noticed that Yahoo’s SiteExplorer sub-sub-domain gives the same error. I assume it will be “fixed” soon, but it is heartening to know that even one of the biggest websites on the planet gets this kind of annoying bug, too.Written by David Leonhardt
