Google Chrome for OS X generally doesn’t play well with proxy servers, especially those that require NTLM authentication. Those who have tried to use it in the past will be greeted with a constant barrage of proxy authentication prompts, each successful entry of credentials loads a tiny little bit more of the site..
However, there is a way to resolve this. Using a simple command in OS X terminal you can enable NTLM authentication in Chrome, and only have to enter your credentials once.
- Open Finder
- Open the Utilities folder
- Open a terminal window
- Copy and paste the following line in:
Sudo /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --auth-schemes="ntlm"
- Enter your password and press enter
- Now quit and relaunch all Chrome windows.
That’s it. You should never be prompted again, at least not until you change your password.
