Before somewhere around Chrome 55, I could look at the details of a certificate a website is using by clicking on the Green lock icon. Now that functionality seems to be gone; see picture below.
How can I bring this back? I know I can go into Developer Console -> Security but it's tad bit inconvenient.

As of Chrome 60 it is possible to return certificate details under "lock" menu. This option has to be enabled manually by accessing
When you enable it and restart the Chrome, option to view certificate will be visible when you click on lock icon.

You can now find this information in Developer Tools.
Three Dots Menu > More Tools > Developer Tools, then click the "Security" tab and you'll get a "Security Overview" with a "View certificate" button.

From that menu, you have to follow below path:
Click on "Customize and control Google Chrome" >> More tools >>
Developer tools >> Security >> View Certificate.
Check this screen-shot:
Simply press F12 >> Security >> View Certificate.

Not sure why this hasn't been mentioned yet, but you can hit F12 to bring up the developer window, and then switch to the 'Security' tab to view the certificates. May be easier than Ctrl + Shift + I.

I have Chromium 55 on one OS and Chromium 56 on another, so can see the difference. An unwelcome change, but the 'developer tools' tab remembers settings, so all I have to do to check the cert in Chromium 56 is click F12, and then 'View Certificate,' as before.

You can click on the icon to the left of the URL, which is the letter 'i' in a circle. The Details link has an option to view the SSL certificate.
