Is saving passwords in Chrome as safe as using LastPass if you leave it signed in? - Information Security Stack Exchange - https://security.stackexchange.com/
The feature we've been talking about helps users. That other one was a misguided attempt at being useful by filling in forms using things you typed on other websites. So imagine an autocomplete assistant like Clippy, but with worse social skills: "I see you're trying to log in to Ebay; I'll just fill in your login from Yahoo and we can see if that works." Yeah, we had funny ideas about security back in the 90's. You can see why putting autocomplete=off into everything even remotely security-related quickly became a bullet-point in site audits.
