That's just it. BleepingComputer doesn't understand the difference between a DV and an EV certificate and falsely assumes that Lets Encrypt is not doing exactly what a Certificate Authority issuing a DV certificate is supposed to do: Verify the requester is capable of administering the domain in question and nothing more.
Maybe this is just a problem with the latest Chrome beta (I haven't checked others) but it seems to display both EV and DV certificates in exactly the same way to me. On
How is your average internet user supposed to know the difference when someone can get a DV for a phishing website that looks just like their bank website and the URL bar looks exactly the same (bar the easily-missed URL difference)?
I checked PayPal as well and that shows the URL bar differently (with PayPal, Inc. in the green box) even though that's also "Symantec Class 3 EV", so there seems to be something odd going on there. To be honest, even with that, I don't think the average user would know the difference between a green box containing "Secure" vs. the name of the company, they're just looking for that green box/padlock.
