Plain wrong!


I tested it in IE8, Firefox 3.5, Opera 9.64, Safari 4 and Chrome (Dev channel), all on Windows.
Only Chrome fails the test and do not ask for your credentials when
going from Foo to Bar the first time; all others take the realm into
account when storing the credentials for use in subsequent requests;
realm is not just a label in a dialog box.
