     Depending on your scenario, specially if that's a corporate
network, you can somehow easily have your browsing agents (browsers)
transparently CONFIGURED, using Windows AD policies (if that's your
case) of even WPAD thing.

     That way, having the browsers transparently CONFIGURED (that's
absolutely different from transparently intercepted requests), you can
use authentication with no problem at all.
