Talk...? Talking is one of the most popular ways of using the Internet. But - for some reason - you don't need to provide your password every time you want to talk with another person. Somehow they know that it's you. So why HTTP servers do not know? And why not to teach them how to do this?

There already exists a protocol ([http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0070.html XEP-0070]) which enables HTTP server to verify HTTP requests via XMPP. It describes how HTTP server can take advantage on strong authentication provided by XMPP and just simply associate unknown (until now) user clicking a link in browser with a well-known and "well-authenticated" XMPP user.

And now, imagine that your browser acts like an (invisible) XMPP client. Sure, it will need to know your password, but this is just one password (and it's not same-password-everywhere solution!). In exchange for this one password, your XMPP-enabled HTTP browser could automatically confirm all your HTTP requests in background! You don't need to send any password to HTTP server - just tell the server: "''yes, I'm a happy Jabber user!''" and everything else will happen automatically.

* Firefox extension: It will understand server's offer to use this protocol and provide all data needed to start the authentication (like user's JID). At the same time, it will act as invisible XMPP client, which will automatically confirm the requests: this way, the only user action to authenticate will be to provide their JID
