Allow the user to continue if client certificate cannot be presented.  In 
this case, the web application will fall back to password authentication 
with Firefox and IE.

Error 110 (see attached).  No way to continue.

I had a similar problem. When I went to page that needs smart card certificate, 
Chrome missed first window where I have to input PIN of smart card and went directly 
to password window. Therefore, it looked like smart card is not in the reader.

No 'Error 110' reported, just didn't work.

In the current implementation based on WinHTTP, Chrome supports
sites that request but don't require SSL client authentication
only on Windows Vista, because the WINHTTP_NO_CLIENT_CERT_CONTEXT
flag is not supported on Windows XP:

This limitation of WinHTTP will be eliminated when we finish and
switch to our new HTTP stack.

We also need to implement the UI for the selection of a client
certificates, when the user does have client certificates.  That
work can proceed in parallel to the work on the new HTTP stack.
