Since it�s a HTTP1.1 complice (BASIC also), why this sentence is not true?
"This authentication method is supported by all the commonly used browsers."
as far as i know it would be some simething like this:
BASIC - HTTP1.1
DIGEST - HTTP1.1
CLIENT CERT -
FORM - J2EE SPEC
does it make sense?

Authentication (either Basic or Digest) is an
feature of HTTP/1.1, not a required one. All browsers support Basic, but few support Digest.
(I don't understand the list of authentication methods, so I can't comment on that.)
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: DIGEST authentication type
which mechanism is build in HTTP?
http authentication methods
a vague question
