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 would say Ark42 (and most other people who still use the Mozilla suite) are the kind of people who prefer to have one application that does it all - internet wise. His point was that it is annoying to have to open a separate program to do each little thing, and I agree.
