Nice initiative, but don't bother end users with this, they are totally not interested. They won't even know what the are complaining about when they click that link in the popup. And when browsers start something like this, why not make more icons in the address bar, like not using proper SSL ciphers, not using DNSSEC or "this website includes 3rd party scripts" the webmaster should be ashamed about...

Maybe you're right, but a) I don't think there are any other options (Governments have great difficulty forcing policies on the Internet), so in a way this would be a last resort. b) DNSSEC etc would also be nice, but I think the ipv6 crisis is a lot more important at the moment. If we have to focus on one thing it would be ipv6.
