I’m using a letsencypt.org SSL certificate for my amateur radio website
and an EV SSL certificate, for my company
which will cost me $69 to renew from a Comodo reseller - not exactly a fortune, even for a small company.
A few weeks ago I asked on a Facebook group devoted to the area I used to live, if anyone looked at the address bar and see the green in it. Obviously that was NOT a site of computer wizards, which is why I asked there. Nobody responded. Neither did anyone respond when I asked whether they see “not secure” either!
This forum post
makes an argument that EV SSL certificates are dead. It is however based on the fact most people browse from a mobile device. That still leave a lot of people that don’t, who will see more information.
I do wonder if I am wasting my time renewing an EV SSL certificate, or whether a Comodo EV SSL is worth the $69 to a small commercial company - only two employees.
