[WEB SECURITY] EV SSL certificates

What are people's opinions on EV SSL certificates?  Will they be
widely adopted?  Will they make a dent in phishing attacks?

I'm going to guess that they will be widely adopted by the large
e-commerce and financial sites, but they won't make a significant
difference in losses due to phishing.  End users just aren't going to
look at the URL bar enough to understand what is going on.

Regards,
Brian
