OpenID

I was browsing through Yahoo! last evening after a long time. My attention was caught by unusual link to sign up for OpenID. Now, what's an OpenID? The name itself suggests that with a single account id, we can sign up any website provided that website supports the usage of OpenID. OpenID was introduced by LJ. Say you have a yahoo id, you can sign up any website with your yahoo id; provided that website supports OpenID. This is the same as we notice while commenting on blogspot blogs.

This feature has not been supported by gmail, so far. Is Yahoo! offering this feature to maintain or increase its user count?

I signed up OpenID. Did you?
