Autocomplete Always On! is a script which patches WebKit (MacOS X's HTML rendering engine, used by Safari), to ignore the "autocomplete" flag (a non-standard HTML extension of IE). This flag is used by some (but not all) banks and other Web sites to disable a browser's AutoFill feature on certain Web pages.

The bad news is that Apple often makes changes to WebKit, which overwrite this patch, so this patch may need to be re-applied after system and security updates. But the good news is this script is fairly resilient the way it is written, and is likely to work long into the future, even with newer versions of Mac OS or more...

Works great even through Safari 4.0. I wish Apple provided this functionality!

Excellent script! I love it, but the dark side is it is just for Safari. Is it possible to have a similar script for Firefox ?

Since Firefox does not use the Webkit rendering engine, it would require a different solution. I think there are already FF plugins to do this (e.g. Annoyance Remover).

Hmm... well, it doesn't appear to be working for me. I just ran it, restarted and went to Bank of America and a file upload site that I use occasionally and Safari didn't offer to remember any form values in either. I actually wouldn't want the bank site to remember my login, but I'm really tired of having to manually enter info on the file upload site.

Safari 2.0.4 (running Saft and SafariStand, in case that matters), OS 10.4.7.

Bank of America doesn't use the Autocomplete flag. They use a two-page login. This patch only works on sites which use the Autocomplete flag.

To determine if the site is using the Autocomplete flag, view its source and search for "autocomplete". If nothing shows up, the site is using a different means to prevent your password from being auto-filled.

Sometimes this is achieved through Javascript (which can be quickly disabled via the Developer menu; don't forget to reload the page). Of course you also have to have Safari's preference set to fill in passwords.

If you have strong physical control over your Mac, having it remember your bank's password is more secure than using an easy to remember password which can be easily hacked. Clearly everybody's situation is different, so YMMV.
