[tor-talk] Mozilla Persona and Tor
Myself I'm quite happy with OpenID. I have been using it for a few years
and I am sad it has not expanded as I don't use FB and I have some
doubts about Twitter being any better than FB.
I have heard in the past about Persona. Actually BrowserID. It sounded
like a bad idea, but I can't recall why I have set this oppinion.
Today I went to a site that requires registration. This is not the New
York Times, so no need of Bug Me Not. It asks for FB (out of the
question), MSN (out of the question), Google (limited number of Tor
accounts) or Persona. I would not sacrifice the Google account.
So how does Persona relate with Tor? Would New Identity be enough? Could
it be safely used while browsing other sites without making TorBrowser
sing to the other sites? Is there a restart imposed? Could it survive
the way LSOs from Flash survive the restart?
