In the past there were issues with the httpd library gsa uses (libmicrohttpd) 
that prevented some browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer) from accessing the gsa.

Felix filed a bug report for libmicrohttpd back in January (see 
https://gnunet.org/bugs/view.php?id=1537) and the issue seems indeed to be 

I've just built gsa with libmicrohttpd 0.9.0 and was able to access gsa over 
HTTPS with Internet Explorer 8 without any issues. There were no changes 
required in gsa.

It would be very useful if folks who had issues in the past with the browsers 
Felix mentioned in the issue (links, Opera, iphone, Safari, IE6+8) could try 
to build gsa with libmicrohttpd 0.9.0 and post their experiences here.

Thanks to everyone involved for fixing this issue!
