Re: An alarming trend in METHOD=POST forms (an FYI)

The biggest problem we have with this GET vs POST method is the
continuing bug in Mosaic for MS-Windows which trashes POSTed
information if the server is asking for authentication. Until this
is fixed, we have to use GET. ;-(

Having said that, we are in real danger of dropping Mosaic in favour
of Netscape, as there are other forms bugs which we are feeling.
( Anyone noticed a GET request with TWO question marks in it ? )
