    This is great! :)

    Before this, I have always been forced to use self-signed certs because cost (yeah, Im a cheap b*****d).
    Wilcard cert from CA companies just cost tooooo much ....

    I wonder how they will audit subscribers. If it is looser than 10$ Rapid SSL certs, it won't make internet more trusted place.

    Love this project. This will mean a lot in the grand scheme of things. I hope they have done their homework.

    So happy to see this news and looking forward to November and an end to the "most expensive collection of bits in the world" (Gutmann).

    Is this related to Blogger's recent HTTPS push? Or is Google's "HTTPS Everywhere" initiative separate?

    Great! I will try and apply for a Lets Encrypt certificate for my own personal blog in the future.
