Submission + - Mozilla: Unlike FB and Twitter single sign-in, Persona protects user privacy->

tsamsoniw writes: Mozilla today unveiled Persona Beta 2, the newest edition of the organization's open authentication system. The release includes Identity Bridging, which lets user sign in to Persona-supported sites using their existing webmail accounts, starting with Yahoo. Mozilla used the releases as an opportunity to bash social sign-in offerings from Facebook and Twitter, which "conflate the act of signing into a website with sharing access to your social network, and often granting the site permission to publish on your behalf," said Lloyd Hilaiel, technical lead for Mozilla Persona. He added that they are built in such a way that social providers have full visibility into a user's browsing behavior.
