Get through the certificate problems which show "This connection is untrusted"

At some places, the SSL security certificates used, don't get recognized properly and users are put through the hassle of adding an exception an innumerable number of times to connect to perfectly valid websites. This is the screen you get to see on Firefox:


Instead of always clicking the "Add Exception" button, I searched if there was something I could use to get rid of this error. Turned out that Firefox had an addon named SkipCert which automatically adds the exception and in a few seconds, you'll be taken to the website you wanted to view.


Get the addon here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/skip-cert-error/

As for Chrome, these appear to be the solutions: http://superuser.com/questions/104146/add-permanent-ssl-certificate-exception-in-chrome-linux
