My first urge is to rant and rave about the ridiculous marketing scheme that Microsoft put together to force people to spend hundreds of dollars for the EV (Extended Validation) certificate. However I already did that in this article .
This posting is to inform you, our Website Forge customers, that we have bit the bullet and purchased the EV certificate. This means that your web sites will always report as completely safe (by Microsoft's standards anyway).
There is an important technical item that I must share with you. Of course when we installed the certificate we all opened the latest Internet Explorer 7 browser, slammed an item in a shopping cart and looked for the "GREEN BAR" that is supposed to be there. To our total dissatisfaction the green bar did not show up. After calling a few people we found that some browers wouldn't turn green.
Here is an article I found explaining that if you change ANY settings in your IE 7 -- the green bar will not glow. I have no idea why this is. I'll let everyone know as soon as we find out why.
If your browser doesn't "GO GREEN" read this article for the explanation. Please don't yell at us -- Its not our fault :)
Anyhow, please enjoy your updated web site security and maybe take advantage of Microsoft's marketing machine and advertise the upgraded security to your prospective customers.
Have a great Easter weekend!
