You cannot compare a low level library like Python's urllib module with a user interface like a modern browser. Browsers do a lot of extra work to make sense of user input. For example Firefox and Chrome mangle your example URL and replace \ with /. Firefox even shows a warning when the URL contains user and password:

You are about to log in to the site “” with the username “user”, but the website does not require authentication. This may be an attempt to trick you.

Is “” the site you want to visit?
