Force Safari to save sites' autofill-blocked form data
Authored by: vocaro on Oct 16, '04 01:45:07AM

I completely agree. The autocomplete attribute is a non-standard Internet Explorer extension, and it should not be used. This is why Mozilla provides a setting called wallet.crypto.autocomplete.override. When true, it tells Mozilla to ignore the attribute.

There's a catch, however. If a web site uses autocomplete=off and knows that a certain browser ignores the setting, the webmaster may decide to block users of that browser. This is why Mozilla ships with wallet.crypto.autocomplete.override off.

Camino users are in even worse shape: It doesn't even support the setting to begin with! That's why I wrote a patch to add autocomplete override support in Camino:

Unfortunately, it still has not been committed. For this and other reasons, I have since switched to OmniWeb, which ignores autocomplete by default, just as a good web browser should.

The current release of Camino ignores autocomplete (as every browser should, IMO).

Should have said it in the title in my first post; no way to edit.

Camino now ignores the autocomplete, as all browers should (IMO).
