New Sign In Window
If you’ve already signed into scrible through the Toolbar today, you may have noticed we’ve changed the process a little bit. Instead of popping up a login dialog inside your current browser window, we’ve switched to opening up a new browser window with the Sign In form loaded in it. This method provides a more consistent, reliable and secure login process given the recent trends in browser security. So now when you hit the Sign In Button on the toolbar, you’ll see something like this:
The experience is exactly the same as the old. So, aside from an extra address bar atop the Window, nothing has changed. You can still sign in via your scrible, Twitter or Facebook account and you will still be signed into the Toolbar without having to reload the page or any other extra work. As an added bonus, you can now see that the Sign In Window is being served to you over HTTPS straight from the scrible servers. This functionally the same as before, but now you have visual confirmation that the connection is from scrible and is secure.
