  1. How about a post discussing why the Nautilus file manager cannot access webdav drives which require a password, and how this situation has managed to persist for two years?

  2. I have accessed webdav drives with nautilus. But then it stopped working. Wait, that might have been just about two years ago.

    OK, where’s the OpenSource project that is trying to fix this problem!!??? What is the reason for this outrage???

  3. As a web browser, Konqueror has a badly broken javascript engine…

    That’s too bad, because Konqueror can access webdav drives with no problem.
    WRT Nautilus, I ran across some comments that it was not nautilus itself which was at fault, but the underlying gvfs commands. Like I give a rip; I just want it to work.
