    Up to 6 hours. Must be their definition of instant :)

It's nice to see that they actually do random reviews, rather than just
issuing everything requested. I use startssl and have not had anything
held for review.

        And I did get my account and cert shortly after. So they are quick.

        On the other hand, I'm not sure I'd trust a cert where they
        happen to be the ones generating the key and the CSR themselves.
        Yes, it's free, but that doesn't mean I want to give up all forms
        of security :)
