n8      hi i am new here so please co operate <strong><a href="httpn16      <a href="https://login.persona.org/">Mozilla Persona</a> is
>://about.me/ravijhag" title="http://about.me/ravijhag">me</a></st> a cross-browser login system for the Web that's easy to use and 
>rong>.>easy to deploy. It works on <a href="/en-US/docs/persona/Browser_
 >compatibility">all major browsers</a>, and you can <a href="/en-U
 >S/docs/Persona/Quick_Setup">get started today</a>.
tt18    <p>
19      Why should you use Persona on your website?
20    </p>
21    <ol>
22      <li>
23        <strong>Persona completely eliminates site-specific passw
 >ords</strong>, freeing users and websites from the burden of crea
 >ting, managing, and securely storing passwords.
24      </li>
25      <li>
26        <strong>Persona is easy to use.</strong> With just two cl
 >icks a Persona user can sign into a new site like <a href="http:/
 >/voo.st">Voost</a> or <a href="http://crossword.thetimes.co.uk/">
 >The Times Crossword</a>, bypassing the friction associated with a
 >ccount creation.
27      </li>
28      <li>
29        <strong>Persona is easy to implement</strong><strong>.</s
 >trong> Developers can add Persona to a site in a single afternoon
 >.
30      </li>
31      <li>Best of all, there's <strong>no lock-in</strong>. Devel
 >opers get a verified email address for all of their users, and us
 >ers can use any email address with Persona.
32      </li>
33    </ol>
34    <p>
35      Plus, Persona is only going to get better: it's built on an
 > <strong>open, decentralized protocol</strong> that's designed to
 > allow <strong>direct integration into browsers</strong> and <str
 >ong>native support by email providers</strong><strong>.</strong> 
 >Sites that implement Persona today will automatically experience 
 >those improvements, without having to change any code.
