Mozilla announces the experimental password free login system that they’ve been working on for the past year that they’ve dubbed “Persona“. Persona been in the experimental pipeline for the past year but now they’ve officially released it for beta.
Rather than having site-specific logins or a social network account connection, that at times may keep tabs on what you’re clicking on. Persona essentially removes the need to remember numerous accounts and emphasizes privacy as some many not want their commentary linked to a social network account.
According to Mozilla, Persona is ready to use and works with all major browsers, be it mobile, tablet, or desktop. The Persona system uses the same pop-up style as Facebook and Twitter integration, so most should be already familiar with it.
Google could be working on a similar system as well as hinted by one of their software developers in a blog post.
