Yes, it's easy in today's world to setup AutoSSL, but not everyone needs, or wants this, and not everyone should need or want this!

Let's forget how 'easy' it is to setup Autossl though, and focus on the sheer numbers of individuals who'd get caught in the horror here. Believe it or not there's bound to be millions STILL using XP , which cannot support SNI at all. So, those people are basically SOL when it comes to Firefox.

Talk about ridiculousness
Google doing the same on chrome and i hear MS going to do it on edge as the secret club CA/B forum wants this.

This is the main reason cPanel set up AutoSSL so that all accounts using cpanel can have ssl as standard
