Yahoo! Releases OpenID Research

None of the users had heard of OpenID before, and none of them even noticed the OpenID sign-in box displayed below the traditional email/password login form on the site. In many cases, the test subjects entered their Yahoo email address and Yahoo password to try to log in. We had told the test subjects that they could sign into the site using their Yahoo! account without having to register…Certainly there is a lot of work to be done on the OpenID UX (user experience) front.
