Summary0002017: Password manager/form filler
DescriptionNetSurf should have the ability to remember http-authentication passwords and username/password combos entered in web forms, and automatically enter them. An obvious extension to this would be a form filler, where various fields (such as address) could be filled in at the press of a button.
 
Usernames and passwords could be stored as encrypted strings in urldb the passwords don't get saved to disk) and managed with an interface using the new treeviews.

Last paragraph should read:
Usernames and passwords could be stored as encrypted strings in urldb (http-auth already uses urldb but the passwords don't get saved to disk) and managed with an interface using the new treeviews.

I would consider this missing feature possibly the biggest difficulty in using NetSurf for daily usage. (Of course JavaScript might be a bigger issue for some people/sites.)

P.S. If adding non-factual comments (to feature requests) isn't allowed, then please delete this comment.
