Time to revisit putting SSL in perspectives, since you can’t even trust CAs themselves.

I took a cursory look at Perspectives add-on’s code, and it cries for a compatibility & performance rewrite (oh, if I could just find the time!), but it’s still the best patch we can currently throw at this problem.

    Seems like the Perspectives add-on is now pure JS, that’s nice.

    I would love to help out on it, but neither do I have time on my hands until summer.

    How about setting up a notary server? It looks like they could use more of those. :)
