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.

It's nice that MS has changed their policy of trying to ignore mozilla. A small victory. No doubt the reason is that many AOL users are now using gecko. Getting AOL users on MSN no doubt is a top priority at MS. I have no illusions about MS suddenly willing to support standards.
