In what application?

In Chrome, your best bet would be to compile Chromium and add the
project cert into their pinned list in the code before doing so.
In Firefox, you'd probably be best served by using Convergence or
CertPatrol to verify the certificate through external validators or
notify you if the certificate changes (respectively).

In other applications: IE, wget, curl, etc - there aren't any
'prebuilt' options - you'd have to write some sort of plugin or hook
