"Other Web browsers" carry builtin certificates. For example if you use
Firefox, click on the lock icon heading the url. Click on "More
Information". Click on "View Certificate". In the "Details" tab, you'll
see that "Google Internet Authority G2" is signed by "GeoTrust Global
CA", which is signed by "Equifax Secure CA". The latter one is a builtin
certificate Firefox knows about, so it is a valid certificate chain.
