Just once would I love to download the latest release of Mozilla for OS X and have NTLM/ISA support ready to go. The Windows version works decently with a little hack for Windows 98. I still believe that the whole Mozilla group shot themselves in the foot, by letting this lag for the past few years.
based on a couple of conversations I’ve had…..
Mozilla Coders: “Arg, Lets Beat Microsoft”
User: “Um, I can’t use Mozilla behind my company’s Microsoft firewall.”
MC : “Oh, that’s too bad. Oo Oo Tabbed Browsing, Oo Oo Flash Screen.”
U: “But you would have more users if you would just do this for us corporate users. And we could beat Microsoft.”
MC: “Uh, can’t you use a Squidmonetron Fazzle Dazzle PHP Proxy?”
U: “Nope, it’s for my Office.”
MC: “Well, hack the source.”
U: “I”m not a programmer”
MC: “Tell your company to ditch the system”
U: “Obviously, you’ve never worked in a large company, where they’ve spent millions and would laugh to ditch an expensive system because Mozilla wouldn’t work”.
U: “You know, fuck this. I’m going to use IE because it works, while you idiots fight over what icon Firebird’s going to use. ”
