for W3c validation
I sure the heck hope so! My colleague just sent me this link, which references Yahoo’s announcement post, and I’ll be watching adoption closely. What does Yahoo’s Browser Based Authentication (BBAuth) do?
BBAuth also makes it possible to use Yahoo! as a single sign-on for your site, thus removing a barrier to entry for a whole lot of people
I hope small & large developers everywhere adopt this so that I can browse around the internet without remembering 15 user names & passwords. Great work Yahoo!!!!
Update: BusinessWeek has picked up on the story and mentions that this could lead to a whole new wave of mash-ups.
