Re: Latest IE patch breaking non username:[email protected] websites?

So, instead of changing 'visialization' part of IE, MS give up and decided
to drop important piece of standard?
Ok, you can always show HOST name in URL, dim user name, and position
location so that you can see real host. You can show a warning, if user name
looks like real domain name (have . inside and have 2 - 4 chars in last
piece of name), etc etc...
