The color of trust
Mozilla, Microsoft and Opera developers met last week in Toronto to decide on a standard method of conveying website trustworthiness to web surfers.
The upcoming Internet Explorer 7 will use coloring of the address bar
to offer feedback to users - It will display red if the site is a known
phishing site, or green if the site is secure. The security
certificates will also be displayed inline, for verification at a
glance. Opera has also included phishing deterrents in recent versions,
in the form of a toolbar.
