This question is loosely related to another one: IIS7.5 SSL Question, Safari users get a prompt of certificate to select, but since it was asked more than a year ago I thought that there may be some changes done in Safari.

So, the problem I am facing is following: I have a SSL protected service hosted by Apache with SSLVerifyClient optional setting on. All browsers except Safari let me get to the service without having client certificate installed, whereas Safari stops navigation if I hit cancel button on certificate selection popup.enter image description here

I was wondering if there is some setting in Safari that would make it possible to get through certificate selection or it is how it is with Safari and there is no chance to workaround it. Disabling client certificates in Apache is out of the question.

I am using Safari 5.1.7 on Windows and Mac

Thanks for any ideas.
