Slashdot has posted an article about how Firefox, in version 32, is going to support key pinning.  This essentially is public key authentication for websites.  Firefox will ship with a list of known websites and their key signature/public key.  This is to help reduce the risk of man in the middle and fraudulent certificates.  Though, its not going to support every website and I’d be interested to see how far key pinning actually is taken.
