Remember this password

So far, the main new features in Firefox 3 seem to be

  1. We moved everything around so you won’t find it
  2. We broke all your plugins
  3. especially mouse gestures which you love
  4. and firebug

ok – the new drop down preview thingie in the address bar is quite useful but it’s not worth upgrading for. But, today, I found something worth having.

Ever gone to a site that needs your password and you go through a kafka-esque cycle of

  • Hmm, haven’t been here for a while, wonder what my password is
  • could it be this *****
  • DO YOU WANT ME TO REMEMBER YOUR PASSWORD!
  • ooh – that would be nice, then I’ll have it next time. OK
  • PASSWORD IS WRONG
  • maybe it’s this *******
  • DO YOU WANT ME TO REMEMBER YOUR PASSWORD!
  • well you weren’t very helpful last time firefox, were you? But, OK.
  • PASSWORD IS WRONG

The big feature in firefox 3.0 is that it only offers to remember your password after you typed in it correctly.

  1. Also, when I used Gestures I mostly used it for the “new tab” gesture. I don’t know if you used it for more than that but I know that if you have more than one tab already open, you can double-click next to the tabs to open a new one, and that’s pretty easy to do.
