Mozilla & Gecko clones Firefox 3.0, released not too long ago, was generally well-received. It added a load of new features, while also providing much-needed speed improvements and better memory management. Some new features, however, have met more resistance - one of them is the rather complicated user interface thrown at users when they reach a website with an invalid or expired SSL certificate.

If you are connecting to a site that you don't really know then identification serves no purpose *anyway* but encryption may be very useful.

I'd say that encryption would be quite useless in this case unless you are worried that people sniffing on the network might laugh too loudly at the crap the untrusted site is exchanging with you ;) .
