NTLM Authentication Supported by Mozilla on All Platforms

Tuesday November 18th, 2003

Microsoft's NTLM authentication protocol, popular on Windows-based corporate networks, is now supported by Mozilla on all platforms. Previously, NTLM authentication was only available to Windows Mozilla users, requiring the presence of the Windows SSPI API. Now, the SSPI code has been discarded and a cross-platform implementation has been checked in. Bug 224653 has more details, including a list of caveats.

I doubt this will be implemented, considering that the Mozilla organization is headed toward breaking Mozilla into several smaller parts (Firebird, Thunderbird, etc.) The whole idea is to have a program that does one thing and does it well. Hence separate applications for web browsing, e-mail, and FTP access.

Plus, is you like your program to have "zilla" at the end of its name, check out Filezilla for FTP ( <> ). It is an excellent FTP application for Windows.
