No More NT Auth on Intranets

A bug that has long been a pain in the ass to web developers and corporate intranet users alike, Bug 231529 - Optionally enable unprompted NTLM authentication has been fixed! That means that if you try accessing a local webserver, Mozilla won't prompt you for your NT username and password. This is a great fix, since it's issues like this that can prevent deployment of Firefox in corporate environments.

The fix will be in for 1.0, which should be out next month according to the Firefox 1.0 Roadmap.

If you'll pardon the evangalism, next time you're shopping for blog software, I would make note that WP lets you edit the slug seperately from the post title. ;)

THen you test it as much as you want, maybe with a friend or two. When you're happy, prevent people from blogging into your MT blog, make your conversion, and hop...
