The good thing about Google Chrome is that it updates automatically. And since Google Chrome has the biggest share, with 58% of the world wide web browsing, we can assume that at least 58% of the visitors will face the message if the website is not updated.
This means that all webmasters should take care seriously the message to update their SSL certificates so they can show how safe are their websites to their customers.
