    Thanks. It's great to see that on ZDNet. But some of the comments are profoundly wedged :(

    It's only been maybe half a year since I started testing sites on SSL Labs for fun. Rarely do I see shopping/banking sites support Perfect Forward Secrecy. Then it also depends on what software their servers are using and how well they support the "best" HTTPS configs- and some don't.

    It'll be a long time before HTTPS becomes a web standard, it may never be. I also don't get why the NSA was the hype needed to get some sites on the ball- do they not realize, or care, the sheer numbers of "things" your internet connection goes through to get to a server or host?
