[mythtv-users] [OT] MythWeb site icon and Firefox 3

So, has anyone else noticed how the Firefox team's choice of colors for 
the Identity Button in Firefox 3/Minefield seems tailor-made for 
MythWeb?  The Identity Button contains the site icon within a background 
that's either gray (no identity information), blue (basic identity 
information), or green (complete identity information) (see 
http://www.dria.org/wordpress/archives/2008/05/06/635/ ).

Since any MythWeb user whose MythWeb site is accessible over the 
Internet*** should have HTTPS enabled (to protect the password during 
transmission) and since virtually none will have an Extended Validation 
Certificate ( 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Validation_Certificate )--which is 
required for a green background--the background should be blue.

While I'm not a graphic artist, I'd have to say it looks pretty good 
with the MythWeb UI color scheme used by the default template.  As a 
matter of fact, it bears a striking resemblance to the button used to go 
to the TV module of MythWeb (the button just a bit below and to the 
right of the Identity Button).



*** Actually, IMHO, anyone who has authentication enabled--i.e. who is 
transmitting a password or password-equivalent (with DIGEST auth) over 
any network--should have HTTPS enabled.
