I'm developing a website using ASP.NET.

I have a form with user name / password and a connect button.

Internet Explorer and Firefox prompt me to save the password, but Google Chrome doesn't.

Any idea why?

This is probably due to your Chrome browser settings:

settings -> advanced -> Offer to save passwords I enter on the web

It can be because the form is not actually being "submitted". Check the onsubmit attribute to see if it returns false, which cancels the submission.

Read this: why doesn't chrome recognize this login form?

The important comment is:

Yes, it doesn't work when you remove return false. You will need to rewrite your code. Chrome does not offer to save passwords from forms that are not "submitted" as a security feature. If you want the Save Password feature to work, you're going to have to ditch the whole fancy AJAX login.
