offline decentralized single sign-on in the browser

Recently, browsers have just begun to implement web cryptography. This means that browsers are now capable of the same kind of passwordless decentralized authentication schemes we’ve had server-side with ssh and tls asymmetric keys for decades.

I think this is super interesting. I wonder if users are going to be able to understand how to use it tho. I do want to try.
