    New Chrome problem?

    I accessed a well known electrical shop today (Comet) in order to buy an item. I went through a cashback site, as is my habit, and used Chrome. When I got to the payment page the https in the page's address was struck through with a red line and the padlock in front of it had a red cross through it, so I did not enter my card details. Instead I accessed the site again using FF and was able to enter my payment details securely.

    Was this a problem with Chrome or something else?

    The red X on the lock means that there was a security issue with the site. Most likely the security certificate did not belong to the company that owns the site, or the security certificate expired. I would have taken my business elsewhere.

    There are many potential reasons for SSL certificate problems. It's very hard to diagnose in retrospect, and usually you would expect the same result in all browsers. However, browsers can be configured to check or to not check for whether a certificate has been revoked, so that could explain the difference.
