In my last post I mentioned how I got irritated by constantly masking passwords and not providing any alternative way to reveal them at will. I was planning to write a Firefox add-on to change the behaviour of password fields but I found an add-on already written to do this which can be found here. Apparently I’m not the only person having such feelings towards masked passwords :-)
I hate blind password masking. I want to see what i type. If there is nobody around to peep at my screen, which is most of the time, then masked passwords provides me no protection. Only helps for creating occasional troubles..
