I’m finally making progress on building a set of HTML and javascript files that can be used on any OpenID relying party web site to allow visitors to easily log in with OpenID, without even knowing what OpenID is.  I mentioned my goal to do this some time ago, and now I have a small partially functional prototype.  Please try it out, and keep coming back and letting me know what you think of it and where you’d like to see it go.

Try out the OpenID login experience.  Remember to comment on what you like and dislike, and what aspects you’d like to see added or changed.

At the moment, I’m struggling to decide whether to go with a fully bona fide popup window or a Javascript in page dialog.  So I provide two links at the top of the page so you can try out each one.  If we don’t go with the full popup window, we’ll have to either redirect the whole page to the Provider, which is sub-optimal for the user and for the RP, or we can use a popup window once the user has selected their OP.
