  1. Nice, but when all passwords are in auto-complete, then no such thing
    needed, since all username/password are filled and you need to click "Login"
    button.

  2. The purpose of this function: with passwords, your authentication belongs
    only to your credentials, in case they are stolen, anybody can log with your
    credentials (stoling a password is really easy today, just check tabnagging
    : http://www.azarask.in/blog/post/a-new-type-of-phishing-attack/ , click on
    another tab and wait 5 seconds ^-^ )

    Using a browser authentication, any fraudulent access would need to be done
    on your own browser.
