I wonder why so many people are just blind of hatred when the topic is
Microsoft. It is not a secret that I dislike Microsoft, but I am not
blind of hatred like you obviously are. All standard browsers support
the http://username:password@... . THIS makes it a standard, no matter
what the bloody RFC writes. The majority of people liked adding
username:password to the URL, so it was implemented into all browsers
and became a standard. That the RFC was not updated is not the fault
of Microsoft. If the community had not accepted this as standard it
would not be in other browsers (like mozilla), too.
