    Check it out; Settings>Safari>AutoFill>Names & Passwords

    It's fantastic. I logged in on macrumors and a little message pops up asking if it should save my login information! I love it! Sorry if this is a repost, but I am excited!

    Do you know if it syncs with Safari keychain? Seems like something that would be possible.

    This will be especially helpful with the Wi-Fi at my university. As it is now, I have to manually enter my log-in name and password every time I want to use Safari via the network.

    Doesn't it do that anyway on 2.2, with the cookies? :confused:

    similar to the WiFi at our university, except we also have to check a checkbox :-(. Doubt that will be supported!

    It is very easy to login at the university using Easy wi-fi app, it automatically logins to your university connection just by opening the app.

    Well how is it that I only have to input login details for many sites only once, if I have cookies enabled?

    Because in the cookie the session is saved not the same as Safari actually saving your username and PW.

    I've had Safari allow me to log into several websites by "saving" my login information for a long time now. If it isn't saving the login information then I don't know what it was doing, but I didn't need to enter it each time I visited the website.

    That's what mean. The only time I have re-enter any logins, is if I clear the cookies in Safari. So something is getting saved in 2.2, regardless of reboots(hard or soft), and clearing of both the cache and history.

    Look at my earlier post and check out how cookies work on wiki, it saves the session really handy but not the same as locally storing your information on your device.
