Mozilla Persona

OK, this is really interesting. I have long argued that a person's ID should be stored in their browser. When OpenID was launched just a few days after I released my own system, it opted instead to require users to type their OpenID URL in any time they wanted to login. Now we have Mozilla Persona, which I see for the first time today. It builds on other Mozilla synchronization features, like schema. It looks like it's cross-browser, though - I tested it on Chrome. The implementation looks drop-dead simple and almost exactly like my old mIDm system. Here's the developer guide. I'm leaving on vacation shortly so I won't be able to explore this in detail until the fall - but it's definitely worth exploring.
