For the same reason that "scientific research" can be paid for to prove
or disprove practically anything.

Apparently the negotiateauth stuff (using kerberos) is scheduled to be
included in Mozilla 1.7:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17578

That's the bit that transparently authenticates you to the webserver (ie
like Windows Integrated Authentication on IIS and IE).

I would really like to see completely transparent authentication working
across just about any combination of OS, browser and webserver (and proxy
server also).

Cheers
Anton

Your original post seems to have dropped off my server, but I find using
that app you linked to, kinda like using our Java interface for backups
at work...
