What is Web Browser Ubiquity or Web Browser Recognition?
The list of SSL certificate with over 99.99% web browser ubiquity
Web Browser ubiquity is the term used in the industry to describe the estimated percentage of Internet users that will inherently trust an SSL certificate. The lower the browser ubiquity, the less people will trust your certificate. Clearly, if you are operating a commercial site you require as many people as possible to trust your SSL certificate. As a general rule, any SSL certificate with over 99.99% web browser ubiquity is acceptable for a commercial site.
However, ubiquity is not the only consideration in deciding whether one SSL certificate is better than another. Companies running high-transaction-volume web sites need to maximize customer confidence. They do this by purchasing certificates from well-known, stable security vendors and primarily use the major players such as GeoTrust®, RapidSSL®, Thawte® and Symantec™ that are all Web Trust compliant.
If you have a low-volume web site and you decide that your customer's confidence is not affected at all by the brand behind the SSL certificate, or the volume of customers that would have an issue is very low, then GeoTrust®, RapidSSL® and Thawte® SSL certificates are an ideal.
