in reply to OT: Preventing browser from remembering login form password

Most browsers come with features that allow them to remember passwords for users, and most have options to disable that feature. The specifics of turning it off vary from browser to browser.

(There is also some non-standard, proprietry HTML extension that lets the author disable the feature in some browsers. I don't know the syntax off the top of my head, and would discourange its use (since its (a) non-standard and (b) a choice that should be left in the hands of the user, not the author)).

    If autocomplete="off" isn't already a standard, it soon will be... "In practice, this attribute is required by many banking institutions, who insist that UAs with auto-complete features implement it before supporting them on their Web sites. For this reason, it is implemented by most major Web browsers already, and has been for many years."

    However, I would discourage its use because it's irritating and it's the reason I have greasmonkey installed in the first place.

    I can't help but wonder if the Question Asker was really looking for $cgi->delete_all though.
