But IE does exactly the same thing.
If you connect to a site which has either a self signed certificate or a
certificate issued by an unknown CA you get a pop up window which states:

"Information you exchange with this site cannot be views or changed by
others. However, there is a problem with the site's security certificate.

The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to
trust. View the crtificate to determine whether you want to trust the
certifying auhtority"

Netscape and opera also present similair messages in the same circumstance.

Are the pop-up windows in IE/Netscape/Opera also major annoyances?
