As the only good use for invalid certificates is development, there should be an option in browser's Development menu to disable certificate checks, perhaps until browser restart or just in current window. We don't want users to make the decision whether an invalid certificate means that they are unsafe.

By "invalid" you mean "unverified" right? Yesterday I self-signed a certificate and installed it on a new jabber server, and then got it talking to gmail. Isn't that a good use for "invalid" certificates? I can see that the front of the web might be pickier, but don't shut out us indie operators!
