Does anyone know? Also, I think you need to change the Element ID to whatever your site uses. You can find that in IE by viewing the Source HTML.

So yeah it works there in Youtube but I don’t think it works anywhere else. (that’s the reason the video has so many “doesn’t work” comments :P)

Also, websites don’t mask the passwords it’s the browser 🙂

Better solution: use the password manager that comes built in with the browser 😛 (at least in Firefox). You can see all of your passwords there.

*Facepalm*
