Does Google Chrome work with Windows Authentication? We have internal websites that use Windows authentication and I'd like Chrome to not have to prompt me every time I access those sites for username/password.

It seems that it doesn't at the moment. Auto NTLM authentication is currently on their list of known issues here.

UPDATE: Chrome 5 beta now supports Auto NTLM authentication :)

+1 for the update from me too! Chrome beta has now become my work browser as it also solves my Flash lockup issues as well. – Shevek May 5 '10 at 9:41

It supports windows athentication, however it does not currently support Automatic intergrated windows atuhentication see this issue on google code for the history.

What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Configure the browser to use a proxy (I use Squid 2.7/Stable 2) with authentication enabled. 2. Chrome will prompt for a username and password to auth with the proxy. 3. Browsing continues normally for the session.

What is the expected result?

Integrated authentication in the browser would use the current users logon credentials to authenticate with the proxy server.

What happens instead?

Chrome will prompt for a username and password to auth with the proxy. Entering the credentials manually allow the user to continue normally.

And what will that do? – Oliver Salzburg Jun 8 '12 at 13:31
It will pass along the windows credentials to the sites listed in the whitelist. – DShook Jun 8 '12 at 13:35
