Hi,

I just read the great news on twitter and I'd like to share them:

"Thanks to dozents of sponsors we raised Euro 2000 to patch OpenSC for 
full Crypto Stick (and OpenPGP Card) support.
[...]
Now you can use the following applications with the Crypto stick, for 
instance:
[...]
Firefox web browser: Other than with passwords, some web sites 
(http://www.crypto-stick.com/en/certificate-authentication) allow users 
to login via client certificates which provides a better security."

As I've got my own OpenPGP Card in my pocket, I'll try to use WebID with 
it as soon as the new OpenSC release is ready.
