Submission + - Yahoo! Supports OpenID (unofficially)

Corrado writes: "This article over on Vecosys talks about logging into Yahoo! using OpenID to provide logon credentials. You can find more information on the specific implementation on the idproxy.net site.

I really love the idea of OpenID and use it whenever I can, especially on Zooomr. What would it take for other, bigger sites to start using it? There are also some thoughts and fears around OpenID opening the doors to more phishing attacks. What do you think? Would you use it in place of your various web passwords?"

The earth is like a tiny grain of sand, only much, much heavier.

Working...
