Calomel SSL Validation Publisher's description
The "Calomel SSL Validation" add-on grades the SSL cipher strength of the current connection.
The "Calomel SSL Validation" add-on grades the SSL cipher strength of the current connection. Access to a detailed summery of the SSL negotiation is supplied by a toolbar button. The button will change color depending on the grade from red (low score), to orange, to yellow, to blue and finally to green (high score). Standard http unencrypted connections will turn the toolbar icon gray as will any blank tabs.
In the options section you can enable the use of only the strongest 168 and 256 bit ciphers in high security mode in addition to the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP). Other tabs include speed optimizations like network pipelining, the ability to run off page and DNS prefetching, tab previews and an option to disable annoyances like blinking text and gif animations.
