I am evaluating the Yahoo Browser Based Authentication Rails plugin for use in my web app. It looks like a good idea to make the signup process easier by using this plugin.
I see the following advantages for using it:
I don’t have to struggle with Acts As Authenticated or RESTful Authentication plugins to get this functionality.
I can safely assume most of my customers already have an Yahoo account.
I don’t know what information will be made available after the signup process. Has anyone used it? Is it like Single Sign On? Does Google have something similar? TIA.
