You should ph-off

Just for fun I built a FireFox plug-in to help protect OpenID users from phishing and Pharming attacks. The idea for this plug-in first came from Nat Sakimura one of the board members and I was finally launched into action when Dick Hardt said "the solution is that we need 'something' on the client" the other week at an OpenID tech workshop. Now, I don't know if this is what Dick had in mind but it should raise the bar for a would-be phisher to succeed if it's used right.... Go on, ph-off
