With the rush for sites to deploy their EV SSL Certificates and get the green address bar, I'm running out of ways to say, "Hey, such-and-such an important site has put up EV." Deploys, goes live with, goes green, I've done them all.

In this case we're going with has, and the Web property is Hotmail. Hotmail, of course, is a Microsoft property and therefore part of the Windows Live/MSN family of sites. And the EV provider Microsoft has chosen to go with is VeriSign.

Yes, I have noticed the big change when logging in my mailbox. The address bar goes green! Good job, Verisign.

Anyway I think they choose Verisign instead of Microsoft ev to make the web more compatible with browsers other than IE.
