It would be great if the TorBrowser would offer an easier interface to reach HTTP(S) authenticated hidden services.”

Well, that's what Tor Browser 9.5 now supports!

Having easy access to Authenticated Onion Services is a wonderful gift to all sysadmins.

Do you want remote access for a service for which you're not too sure of the code quality? Put it behind an Authenticated Onion Service: unless attackers have their hand on one of the private key, it's not even possible to get a connection to the server.
