Decided again to try Google Chrome for work (doing web page development) as Firefox had been doing a go slow on some website or other for no discernible reason. It lasted about 15 minutes, turns out the Google Chrome plug-in for the password manager I use doesn’t support the pop-up dialogues used by Basic access authentication or Digest access authentication. It may seem a minor thing but we use Digest access authentication extensively in-house.
Surprising how quickly we can be locked-in to ways of doing things. I’m sure there are password managers that support Chrome better but I don’t want the inconvenience of switching. At least this time with Chrome I didn’t hit any new bugs.
