Make browser ignore SSL certificate errors
Date Added: 2/14/2022

A website accidentally had a certificate selected for SSL that lacked the necessary Usage purpose codes.  Chrome and Edge refused to allow me to visit the site because of an SSL problem, lacking any option to override the warning and continue despite the risks.

To ignore the problems and access the site without any problems, just run this command to open a nice, obedient web browser instance:

"C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --ignore-certificate-errors
