In case you missed the big news, Internet Exporer 7 is out of release candidates and available for public download. I'll remind you that probably the biggest driver behind this release was the need for enhanced security, and security is what SSL is all about. To quote IE7's description on the Microsoft site,
Internet Explorer 7 provides security through a robust new architecture, security features that help defend against malicious software (also known as malware), and new ways to better protect against the theft of personal data from fraudulent websites, a practice known as phishing.
And of course, that's why we've been working so hard to bring you Extended Validation SSL Certificates.
