Microsoft No Longer Blocking Gecko Users From Getting a Passport

For a long time, users of Gecko-based browsers could log in to Microsoft .NET Passport services but were blocked from registering for a new Passport. Now this latter restriction has been lifted and Gecko users can sign up for a Passport without being told to 'upgrade' to Netscape Communicator 4.08. Read bug 141279 for the details.

Given Passport's poor security/privacy record, why would anyone want to use it? Better to pressure sites into using Liberty/XNS.
