Default How to avoid a Basic Authentication popup via link


Is there a chance to avoid the popup mask of a BASIC authentication with a direct link?
Like http://user:password@sub.domain.yy ?

We have a basic login from an ISA Server and now our customer wants a loginpage. Normally this should be done via a form based auth. But as far as I know the ISA Server doesn't support form based login.

Not reliably any more, or maybe if you control the browsers used and they are old...

MS has removed support for that scheme. I'm not sure about if it works/ever worked in other browsers.
