Automatic Basic Authentication now is supported by Chrome

It seems that Chrome team has a few versions ago implemented the onAuthRequired on the webRequest class, so now I guess that is possible integrate use 1Password with web sites that require HTTP basic authentication.

I wrote a extension for Chrome that demostrate that and it is available for free in the official Google Chrome Webstore:

Maybe the 1Password team can in the future create a similar extension but integrated with 1Password.

    Hi @thebroker,

    Thanks for the information! I'll be sure to pass this along to our developers and see if they can make use of this :)

    Please keep in mind though, that the 1Password extension needs to function across multiple browsers. It will be a tricky feature to properly implement until other major browsers support this as well.
