The process of adding a self signed certificate to the list of trusted certificates in Chrome is manual and tedious. I frequently access a trusted website that uses a self-signed certificate. As I am now tired of pressing "Proceed anyway" every time I access the website, I decided to quickly develop a chrome extension that adds a self signed certificate to the list of trusted certificates on a click. Firefox already has a useful extension that does so.

I have gone through Google Chrome's extension Developer guide at and have also read a couple of other blogs, but I am not getting any relevant pointers on how to implement this extension.

Could anybody kindly tell me how to start implementing this extension or point out any useful references?

It is manual and tedious because it is designed to make you think twice. – kinokijuf Oct 18 '14 at 15:01
