IE 7 gives secure Web sites the green light

(CNET News)
Microsoft has flipped the switch on an IE7 feature that displays Web sites with new security. The software giant made a change that allowed Web sites fitted with a new type of security certificate to display a green-filled address bar in IE 7. This is a new weapon in the fight against phishing scams and is meant as a sign that a site can be trusted, giving Web surfers the green light to carry out transactions there.
