When reading your discussion, an idea grew in my mind:
All over the world there are lots of servers, where you have to identyfy
yourself with username and Password. Of course, Netscape (and other
Browsers to) will remeber the last things you entered, but only during
the current session. So far, so good.
Having that in mind, I think it would be a goog thing to have a page with
lots of links to password protected pages, where all the username and
Passwords are stored as cookies on client side, once they have been
entered. You know what I mean?
As a nice effect, I think this would make users to come back to that
page, not only adding the followed links to their Bookmarks :-)
I have no Problems in saving cookies, but is there a way to find out the
server wants to have a password? And then, can I answer to it with
Netscape does it for the last authentification.
Any Idea related to that?
