As I understand it this would be helpful in the newest
versions of the browsers like IE 7, the browser would show
Phishing Site and legitimate site next to address bar. For
some good time the old browsers would stay and I am not sure
if this would really help. 

Thanks and Regards,

Subject: [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
