SHA1 - A History of Hard Choices
https://medium.com/@sleevi_/a-history-of-hard-choices-c1e1cc9bb089#.wpzp0jk6g

Interesting article about the deprecation of SHA1 certificates due to security reasons, the comparison to MD5 and why is it taking so long for browsers and websites to stop supporting SHA1.

Facebook’s Chief Security Officer reported between 3% to 7% of browsers don’t support SHA-256.
In a country breakdown, it's not surprising to see these numbers come from the developing world (interesting to see China with more than 6% of users not supporting SHA256, probably due to their reliance on XP).
