"Given how easy Persona is to use from a user’s perspective, it’s a shame that there aren’t more services that support it. But maybe now that millions of new email addresses will just work with it out of the box, it will give developers more confidence in the system and get them to support it." - Frederic Lardinois, TechCrunch
