Subject Re: Basic authentication without a secure connection

The browser takes care of that, and you should not be trying to over- 
ride it.
If you don't want to retype the username/password all the time, then  
you can
tell teh browser to remember the password, or have the server in  
question not
asking for the password, understanding the consequences - this latter  
being more of a 'social' issue than a technical one.

If you don't want an authentication attempt without having a secure  
then you could arrange to have any http pages redirect to https.
