HTML5 Autocomplete Cheatsheet Aug 20, 2014

I was recently frustrated with the documentation on the HTML5 autocomplete attributes and Chrome’s response with the x-autocompletetype vendor specific attribute.

These attributes are typically used on <input> elements to better signal to the browser the best way to “autofill” a form. The problem, however, is that there is no official standard yet, and there are mild differences between values used for autocomplete and values used for x-autocompletetype.

The best documentation I could find on autocomplete types was on, but the formatting made it a bit difficult to easily see what types were available/recommended.

Hence, this cheatsheet was born. Let me know if it helps.
