Netscape’s OpenID support is live. This release also greatly simplifies the signup process by removing the captcha and the request for other information that was previously required for registration.
The announcement just went public that, starting on Monday, Netscape.com and My.Netscape will support signup/signin via OpenID, and consequently, AOL screennames (AOL hosts an OpenID for each registered screenname). I’ve used the OpenID registration/signin process in our QA environment, and it is slick. Kudos to Blaine and Trey on this awesome new feature.
P.S. I know I’m biased, but I love it when a service delivers new features rather than just promising to get around to them.
