Simple task: I'd like to use uzbl, but I need to visit a couple of sites with client certificates. Chrome uses my local cert storage, I suppose uzbl can do that too. But how?

First, Linux has no such thing as "my local cert storage". Most programs just keep keys wherever they like. I think Chrome was the first to propose a database shared by several programs, the ~/.pki/nssdb.

But uzbl won't use the database unless it is told to - which is highly unlikely, considering that uzbl does not use NSS. (libsoup, the HTTP library used by uzbl, uses GnuTLS.)

Besides, it seems that uzbl doesn't even support server certificate verification, not to mention client authentication.
