In conjunction with Earth Day we announced a limited-time program whereby VeriSign would plant a tree for each Extended Validation SSL Certificate we sold. I just saw the data for April 22, Earth Day, and our EV registrations were almost double what you would expect for that day. So good work, folks. We'll be planting a lot of trees because of you.

Nasko built a crawler to look at the Alexa one million (the million most trafficked web sites according to Alexa) and count the SSL Certificates it found on them, by root....
