Basic authentication credential storage

RE: Basic authentication credential storage
The credentials are not stored on the browser side. What you are probably seeing is server-side caching. On the first request the credentials have not been accessed in quite a while and the server probably needs to go to disk (or some external system). On subsequent visits the server already has the credentials in RAM (even if it is just the OS filesystem cache) so it is a lot faster.
