today announced a free service to encrypt emails with Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail/MSN, currently the most widely used webmail services worldwide. Based on Web 2.0 technology (Ajax), freenigma can be integrated into any webmail program as a Firefox extension. Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail/MSN are the first to be supported, but plug-ins are also planned for Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and mobile devices. It is platform-independent — the only requirement is a Firefox browser under GNU/Linux, Macintosh or Microsoft Windows XP. Through an open application programming interface (OpenAPI), software developers worldwide can extend freenigma and integrate it into their own applications. Freenigma is being launched as a free software service available worldwide. The beta version of the software will be available the beginning of August.
