I use Chrome. On some sites it seems that it remembers an immense number of entries for different fields. I find it very handy. However, on some sites, it doesn't do so well. One example that is driving me crazy is on the AWS console. When updating a Lambda function I need to copy a file over from S3. There is a field that requires a very long URL that I have to go retrieve elsewhere every time.
The HTML for the field is:
<input type="text" autocomplete="on" id="awsui-textfield-5" class="awsui-textfield awsui-textfield-type-text">
Because of the
autocomplete="on" I would expect Chrome to just "do the right thing™", but maybe because the field is not in a
<form> it's not.
What conditions must occur in order to have a field be saved?
I frequently make bookmarklets or userscripts to solve little annoyances with websites. I would love to do that here, but I don't know what needs to change.
