Revision Content

BrowserID is a new way for users to log into web sites using their email address.

It's easy for users, who only have to remember a single password. It's also intuitive, since an email address is commonly understood to be associated with an identity.

It's easy for web sites too: a web site that already uses email addresses to identify its users will typically need only an hour or two to get BrowserID working. In return, web sites get verified email addresses to contact their users, and by eliminating the need to make users go through a confirmation step, web sites can increase their conversion rates.
