I'm a little confused by what you mean here. The "user:pwd@" prefix is a
part of the URI standard documented in the RFC. As far as I can tell, the
patently incorrect part is that they removed it and thus made the browser
(even more) lacking in standards support. It's a simple example of how MS
solves problems:

I believe the issue was that there is no such thing as "user:pwd@" for
http: or any other URI's with the exception of FTP: 

Just because it is described in an RFC for FTP doesn't mean that you can
go ahead and add this capability to everything else that trails a colon.

If you feel otherwise, please show us an RFC that describes "user:pwd@"
for http:.
