Yahoo! meets OpenID

A month ago Google added OpenID support for Blogger blogs - where now you can comment on any Blogger blog with your OpenID. My previous post explains more on that.

Now, we are in to another BIG thing. Here comes Yahoo! with OpenID support. Yahoo! plans to make their OpenID service available in public beta on January 30th.

With the OpenID support , Yahoo! will act as both an OpenID Provider [OP] as well as a Relying Party [RP] - so you can use your OpenID obtained from Yahoo! OP to login to any web site accepts OpenID - yeap, you can comment on Blogger blogs with your Yahoo OpenID.
