This is stupid to me.

The industry has CREATED a market where there is none.  What are we
really paying for? Not a certificate: anyone can have a Verisign cert if
they buy it, so why is verisign better than cacert? It's not.  It's just
blindly accepted in most browsers.  That is gay.

There is a 3rd option (kinda), to get a free cert from someone like
CACert.org and manually add CACert (or whoever) as a root certificate
until it maybe gets added to default Mozilla and Opera installations (
unlikely I guess but still infinitely more likely than it ever getting
added to IE)
