Google Chrome NTLM Authentication with Proxy Server

After a change at work I started having a weird problem with Google Chrome. It would pop up the authentication dialog for every outgoing request. The dialog would appear many times for each page so it was hard to identify whether it is a bug or a wrong setting in proxy server or in the domain policy.
However, the solution is simple - instead typing in your username and password, add the domain name to your username. Fill in the full username in the format DOMAIN\Username and everything will be alright.
