I am FORCED to ask, HOWEVER , what the average consumer is supposed to make of this? (“I can make a hat, and a boat…”) Who is this VERISIGN, and why might I care?
The word Verisign isn’t a link. It’s not strongly tied to what I’m seeing. (Except for the small matter of legality, I could make this site pop up that exact same dialog box.) It is eminently forgeable, there’s no URL, there’s nothing graphical.
Nevertheless, it probably pre-sages such dialog boxes popping up next to the colored URL bar, and confusing the message they’re trying to send.
