Is there currently a way in Chrome to stop websites from blocking autocompletion of forms?

I'm open to any suggestions my skills would cover, so if there is no addon which does the job, I'll have a go at editing Chrome's hidden settings or the Windows registry. Writing an addon myself is beyond my powers, unfortunately.

I know Firefox would do a better job at respecting my form-filling preferences, but it really is getting too laggy on my old computer. I'd like to find a Chrome-based solution, if one exists.

You can't - the webpage will control it –  user201067 Feb 21 '13 at 5:47

The Chrome extension Autocomplete=on will do this.

Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. @DaveM What are you talking about‽ How are they to include the essential parts? The solution on that page isn’t textual information, it is the extension itself. Don’t copy-paste flag-reason text without reading the question/answer; you’ll just end up embarrassing yourself. ಠ_ಠ +1 for the good answer (which I’ve been using since Chrome first came out), and -1 for the ignorant comment. –  Synetech Mar 13 at 0:56
    
@Synetech Appreciate the feedback. I believe my comment was posted before the edit by Kevin Panko which changed the post. –  Dave M Mar 13 at 12:22

Not really; the only thing the edit changed was the wording, otherwise it was the exact same post: this extension will solve the problem. My comment applies equally to the original answer, the extension on the page is the answer, there is no way to “include the essential parts”. –  Synetech Mar 14 at 16:47
