Default Log into site A via login at some other site?

One site that I visit fairly regularly (stackoverflow.com) allows ... encourages even? ... logging in using credentials from other sites. Facebook, Google, OpenID and others.

That strikes me as supremely odd, to give Site A my login information for another site. There's nothing on the page about how "We never see what you type here" (as though I'd believe that in the first place?).
