Fill in online forms and passwords automatically

This is wonderful. Safari will fill in online forms with the information you have entered into your Address Book; it takes the data from the card you have designated as “My Card” (use the Card menu in Address Book to do that). You can also tell Safari to remember your user ID and password for specific sites, which is great if no one else uses your Mac (or if you have set up different users).

To enable Safari to fill in forms and passwords, go to the Safari Preferences and click the “AutoFill” icon. Check the appropriate boxes.

Next time you start to fill in a form, Safari will fill it for you. Next time you go to a page that needs an ID and password, go ahead and fill them in, then Safari will ask if you want to save that information. Try it on your .Mac page.

To delete saved user names, passwords, or forms, go back to the AutoFill preferences. Click the “Edit…” button. Select and remove items.
