A short history of the "about:" URL



Here is a fairly recent musing on "about:" URLs that I did just a few months ago.   

Due to my lack of a real blog this may be the first time anyone will read it.

In case you are wondering, about URL's are used by your web browser to do things that URL's really should not do.

There is more info on about URLs on Wikipedia of course:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/About_URI_scheme
