Subject Re: OAuth example
Date Wed, 03 Nov 2010 09:25:39 GMT
Hi, I hope it the right place to ask it.
I want to write an application and I don't want my users to remember yet
another username and password set.
Does OAuth is the answer for it?
Can I use it for single-sign-on using Gmail, Facebook, Yahoo or any other
provider?
