I think in light of basic auth, digest auth looks more like fort knox.
So it seems only logical to prefer digest auth over basic auth
whenever possible. InfCloud claims that it is not compatible, but I
haven't seen any instance of such an incompatibility. The
documentation also lacks pointers to said incompatibilities. My
hypothesis is that such incompatibilities do not exist. In fact, I'm
using (admittedly an older version of) CalDAVMate successfully with
Firefox and Baikal configured to do digest auth. For now, it seems to
me that digest auth is advised against without any substantiation. I
would like to understand why basic auth is preferred over digest auth.
Getting back to the OP (me :-) It doesn't work with Internet Explorer.
Says so right there in the subject line.
I'm *guessing* it's because of the digest auth issue the developer

So unless somebody has a fix that doesn't involve me swapping the basic
auth, I'd consider it substantiated.
