Mozilla has improved greatly over the past two weeks, so if you haven't checked it out, try to pick up a copy of the release when it hits the ftp site.
#43 NTLM Authentication?

Is there any chance Mozilla will support NTLM authentication?
The network people where I work just set up a Microsoft Proxy Server that uses only NTLM authentication requiring IE- effectively wiping out thousands of mostly loyal Navigator users.
They are *not* allowing anonymous access, and they are *not* allowing basic authentication.
I have read some of the past newsgroup posts about it and I realize that NTLM is proprietary and must be reverse engineered to do this.
I wouldn't even expect such a hack to be "officially" supported, as long as it worked well enough.
There seemed to be a general "thumbs down" to NTLM in the newsgroups, but how are we supposed to use a non-Microsoft browser now?
