      Description

      Currently, the API for ignoring certificate errors is synchronous, which means that the entire UI has to be frozen until the user has decided whether to ignore the certificate error or not. This is suboptimal, especially for applications that might be loading pages in the background, for example, a multi-tab capable browser.

      This would probably operate like the defer() method for the QML API.

      Apologies if this is already on the roadmap, I could not find any references to it.
