Absolutely - I'm using it right now :-)

The Squid-NG group have gone one step further and are actually doing full
NTLM proxy authentication - i.e. Internet Explorer users don't even know
they are using an authenticating proxy server (identical to M$ Proxy). Of
course Netscape and other non-Windows browsers fallback on Basic auth.

It all just works :-)

Look through the Squid mailing-list archives, or go to
