Resolving Chrome’s SSL Error

I recently started getting a number of SSL related errors on accessing https links with Google Chrome on Ubuntu. One looks like,

107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR)

The top link on Google’s search results is pretty fuzzy, so here’s the solution that works for me.

Go to Settings -> Options -> Under the hood, and enable both SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0. This should allow Chrome to talk to the server with either protocol.

There’s also a DEFLATE bug that got fixed to solve this issue in release 340 something. http://codereview.chromium.org/1585041
