Have you ever thought: Golly gee, HTTP is great and all, but wouldn’t it be even better if it were a little less
Well do I have good news for you! The wait is finally over! Behold, Secure HTTP!
That’s right, now you can browse the web in absolute safety with this one simply trick certificate authroties don’t

No, you shouldn’t use this. Not only is it highly impratical, it’s probably not actually secure.
