Netscape / Caching

Hi,

I have an ASP.NET website that I'm testing in Netscape 7. The site contains a typical Registration page and a Login page.

In Netscape, once I log out of the website and go back to log in again, it prepopulates the username and password textboxes. This will be a problem if the user uses a public machine. How can I stop this from happening in ASP.NET?

This is a browser issue, and you really don't have much control over these things.  If the user selects "Yes save my username/password for the next time", the browser is going to do this, and you can't stop it.

I couldn't remember selecting to save my username/pwd which is why I thought there must be a way of stopping it.

Just cleared out the Stored Passwords and tried again and this time chose not to save - that's done the job.

After developing intranet applications solely for IE for the past few years, I'm now remembering the headaches cross-browser compatability issues can cause!

Mozilla (Netscape & Firefox) is making a comeback.  Hopefully it's standards-compliant browser will give IE a run for its money!  It's about time web languages be standardized and not be forced what "Microsoft" think is the best way to do things.
