Mozilla Lab’s BrowserID – taking web authentication to the next level

Keeping track of multiple logins, passwords and services on Internet can be tedious at best, and projects like OpenID have tried to target that and make it easier and more secure for end users. Learning the lessons from OpenId and having a multitude of ideas how this can be made even better, Mozilla Labs has created BrowserID.

What is BrowserID?

BrowserID aims to offer you one single log-in to web sites and services, connected through your e-mail address, and you can also naturally add more than one to the same account. The thinking is that you will always remember your e-mail address, and not some made-up user name or URL.

I and Christian Heilmann have a write-up entitled Introducing BrowserID – easier and safer authentication on the web that I would please ask of you to read.

We would love feedback, so please let us know your thoughts and hopes for this!
