thanks all for additional pointers; progess!

i am specifically curious about the mentioned "Google servers and
Chrome will soon be supporting cipher suites based around ChaCha20 and
Poly1305." and "In addition to support in Chrome and on Google's
servers, myself and my colleague, Elie Bursztein, are working on
patches for NSS and OpenSSL to support this cipher suite." from Adam's
blog post.[0]

latest Chrome Beta's still don't have it, they're all giving me
AES_GCM across various platforms. i have not yet tried the nightly
builds, this is what i need for the interim it seems...


best regards,
