Using OpenID

I came upon this blog entry while using the following search term in Google: “safari openid”.  I have been using Verign’s SeatBelt extension for Firefox to enable OpenID credential entry for some of the OpenID enable web sites I use and I agree with the author:

most people will use a hosted OpenID solution and people do not want to type URLs, we can just abstract away the URLs completely  

Entering myOpenid URL ( often quite lond ) for each site becomes an annoyance after a while….

Remember a URL and entering it for each site becomes an annoyance after a while. With the SeatBelt extension the information in entered for me and I can then click to login or not. I want something similar for Safari. Something that I can setup once.

When logging into an OpenID consuming site, that site can provide a selector with a couple of well known sites providing OpenIDs.

Google’s Blogger gas something like this for leaving comments on Blogger hosted blogs.

I have found it very easy to use.
