Why does automatic authentication require a custom browser?  Client
certificates work well for this function in ordinary web applications
(assuming a properly configured server).

As to collaborative browsing, that use case should be balanced against all
the available applications that having a standard Firefox enables
painlessly.   Where is a user story of collaborative browsing (as contrasted
to a shared bookmark repository) documented?
