It depends. If the site is using basic auth (ie, the browser pops up
dialogue box asking you for a username and password) you can often pass
this information in the URL; [oi! you mean COLON!]
yes! that does it! thanks, Rob.
the website in question is the controlpanel at Neil Spellings'
Purleyhosting for one of my domains. i'm pleased that now i can
simply doubleclick this URL file and go directly to the relevant page,
several levels into the controlpanel.
this makes a pain-free method to quickly define a unique email alias
at my domain. (i always do this when registering with any online
service or mailinglist, so i can abandon the alias if it starts
i had always presumed i had to resort to an American browser on the
laptop to do the chore, but it's great to have it set up as a mere
doubleclick in Netsurf now.
