You could write a Sniffer::HTTP program that makes backups of your posts without requiring any changes to your browser at all.

    That relies on your browser sending the information. If you click the "back" button, no data is sent.

    Kids, you tried your hardest, and you failed miserably. The lesson is: Never try.

    Or you could install a mouse/keystroke logger or take screenshots of X every few minutes and then we could get rid of those annoying "Are you sure you want to discard your changes" dialogs from all our applications :)

      Oh sure, if you want to have to retype everything. I kind of like the keystroke logger idea though. That's nice.
