I have looked at ssl-pulse new data from https://www.trustworthyinternet.org/ssl-pulse/ which are based on ssllabs.com test.


I see very nice graphs, very beautifully presented, nice job.


To make it little bit better I have some suggestions how to in my humble opinion improve presentation of data.


1. I would suggest instead of yellow and orange colors to add different lighter green colors. Because A+, A and A- are all excellent grades.


Reorder the legend from best to worst order. Graph starts at 12:00 (clock), so should the legend.


2. Grade D is not used by sslabs.com, it should be removed. Where is grade T?

3. Most of the graphs shows best first (at 12:00 clock) and then worst. Reorder the graph and legend.

4. Does not follow best to worst options. Reorder the graph elements and legend.

5. SHA-256 has 98.8%, SHA-1 is 0% and MD5 is 0%. Where is remaining 0,2%? Maybe "unknown"?

6. Most of the graphs have best to worst order, but Protocol Support does not. I suggest to reorder the graph to make it clear what is best and what worst.


Hope this helps.
