See [[Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#wikitech_bad_certificate]]
The wikitech: interwiki link points a user to [https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/view/], which is self-certified, giving errors on chrome and IE (Please test other browsers). The http: version [http://wikitech.wikimedia.org/view/] works fine.

To reproduce:

  1. Open any language wikipedia.
  2. type "wikitech:" (without quotes) in search bar and press go
  3. You should get a security error

I checked out the certificate, and it seems like wikitech issues itself a certificate, without being a Certificate Authority (CA)

To fix:
*Either get wikitech certified (this is a WMF issue)
*Or fix the interwiki mechanism so that it points to http://wikitech.wikimedia.org/view/Main_Page

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
