Info from Microsoft about the HTTP username support

Microsoft have now released an official Knowledge Base article about the removal of support for usernames in HTTP/HTTPS URL's. The great (yep, great, not just good) news is that this will indeed be done for HTTP and HTTPS only, and it will *not* affect FTP URL's, where this is indeed a useful feature every once in a while. The so-so news is that the support for HTTP will be removed altogether, not controlled by an option or anything, but then that's not really as big a problem as it might seem at first sight.
