AutoComplete my ass

| | Comments (0)
The AutoComplete™ feature glued onto every text input field under Windows 2000 (98?) and above should be a good feature. If it worked correctly.

I design and wire up the UI for web apps. On a typical day I likely type the same 10 login ids about 50 times. Trying out different permissions and roles and account types. You would think that AutoComplete would be useful, no? No. For whatever reason it refuses to remember any of the ids I type. No hints whatsoever appear. But the other day I typed one of the ids incorrectly.. and NOW AutoComplete has chosen to remember that one. Great. I can AutoComplete all my past typos, but can't use it to speed my testing. What's up with that?
