Firefox 3 improves handling of invalid SSL certificates

I have downloaded the beta of Firefox 3 to check out the improvements related to SSL. First, there's the added support for Extended Validation SSL certificates, but I am not very excited about that (I wrote about this previously in Extended Validation SSL certificates not going anywhere, as predicted). It's a nice feature, but it's not going to bring much good overall. On the other hand, I am very happy with the improvements to the handling of invalid SSL certificates.
