After going through previous SSL add-on you are now aware little bit about SSL security. SSL certificate that makes your site secure here this is the third add-on called SSL Personas that I would like to share with you that alerts user about secure and non-secure site by displaying different color schemes in order to identify secure site easily, and to make users safe from fraudulent site.
Being a useful extension when user tries to connect with SSL secured website, ensuring users that the site is safe for login. It also increases SSL warnings on certificate error page.
Popularity: More than 1600 users
This add-on turns browser into different colors depending on level of site security like:
Green color: It stands for secure website that is recognized and verified by Certificate authority. It shows extended validation (EV) of business and provides complete online security with padlock icon shown in below image.
Blue color: It stands for secure website with standard SSL certificate that establishes domain and business ownership over the web. It shows that the business has passed rigorous business verification process by checking business credentials.
Orange Color: While orange color expresses partially encrypted website means some content on web page is not encrypted and runs on HTTP instead of HTTPS. It is a kind of browser security warnings might be happened due to secure and non secure items on your site also decrease the trustworthiness of a website.
Grey Color: If a website is not secured by SSL certificate then it turns grey color of browser. Such websites are not ideal for online transactions due to lack of SSL security. Like Calomel SSL Validation add-on, SSL Personas also cannot verify secure connection for website that runs on HTTP (non HTTPS).

SSLPersonas as a grade display for SSL information appear to be capable of determine security evaluation. In the future, other security factors could be added to the core idea to obtain a further whole security analysis.
Finally, I like to say that SSL concept is necessary to understand if you are internet savvy because there are some culprits who always search loopholes in every cyber world to make innocent people victim of cyber frauds. I think this add-on can bring the level down if user slightly thinks over usefulness of such add-on.
