I often work in the terminal - for example on a VPS I've set up - including for browsing with
lynx. Unfortunately I've been getting some errors:
Error loading https://www.thepiratebay.se/: SSL error

Disclaimer: ThePirateBay is of course just an example - taken completely out of the air... and besides, if I actually used the site, it would only be to read all the in-depth articles...
I've come across the same problem for some other sites too, and I suspect it may have something to do with them using CloudFlare (I'm not sure though)...
chrome have no SSL/TLS problems with the same sites.
I'm running an current updated Ubuntu
14.04.4 x64 on DigitalOcean.
