I've uploaded an animation of how it looks in the current development version 
of GpgOL:


Below this you will find an animation which includes Keygen / Setup with a Web 
Key Service.

I'm not sure if the wording is perfect. "Confirmed" is a bit strong for WKD. 
It's in contrast to "Certified" which is the word for PGP / S/MIME trust.

Apologies for the language mix but I was running on a German Windows.
