Easy sign in:

Why Live and not Facebook-connect? At over 700 million users and counting, as a web developer I would rather have them use Facebook connect to sign in. There is a further benefit to this, in that immediately Facebook marketing strategies are available, which is kind of non optional now-a-days for most developers.

Even if Microsoft Live becomes dominant (imagineable because of Windows’s dominance), I still need Facebook sign in to market the app. Means I need Facebook-connect. So rather than have 2 sign ins, I’d rather have one.

Live sign in:
You just used an email address to sign in and never demonstrated a password presumably because that is an account that Windows 8 knows about. Further when logging into to a web app in IE it was single click, because of the previous login. But do Chrome and Firefox (probably just over 50% of the browser market) support this functionality& the WL object? Does Microsoft have buy in here? an NPAPI plugin preinstalled for those browsers perhaps?

Doesn’t seem that some of this live id tech is as complete a solution to the ’universal problem’ talked about in the beginning given iOS and Android & other platforms.

Additional:
Zeroclick sign in isn’t always a benefit, if you have private info in some of your accounts.
The way the project I’m working on works is using Facebook connect (using the facebook app token as a timeout) to sign in for private info… and using our own cookie for personalization which lasts months.

Hi.cool stuff.I like to build apps on my own.At first it was quite difficult to find low cost and effective web service for this aim as Im not a pro web developer. At last I've found one called snappii.com Here even beginners in coding can be successful app makers.
