    I'm a bit of a facebook junkie, and basically i can't be bothered with entering my login details again when i want to sign in..

    my networks secure, i keep my computer safe and to be honest i dont really give a rats ass if someone can hack it using port 9848 on terminal 15..

    basically i just want to be able to click in and out without all this hassle.

    if anybody can spare a few moments just to let me know of some app that will sort this for me i would be very grateful
    thanks
    nick

    ps, please no patronising comments about 'hassle=security' or similar, I'm aware of the implications :)

    Uh, use Firefox? Safari sucks - I haven't entered a password in years.

    agreed.

    but anyway, to auto login, go to Keychain Acces>Press + Button in bottom to add> Add facebook user name and stuff...figure it out...

    have Safari remember your Facebook password so you can just hit enter or click "login" instead of having to type it each time.

    i don't know of a way to have the website automatically log you in each time you navigate to it, aside from never actually quitting Safari (just hiding it or closing the window).

    Try Camino [official site]. Its the Mozilla Mac project, all the goodness of Mozilla, perhaps even speedier than Firefox (subjective), and built for OSX.

    I heartily recommend 1Passwd which is worth twice its price and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Failing that, there's a free solution for Safari which will allow it to store login credentials even on sites like your bank where the html tells the browser to disallow it. Quit Safari, fire up terminal, and run these commands:
    Code:
    sudo sh
    cd /System/Library/Frameworks/WebKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/WebCore.framework/Versions/A/
    mv WebCore WebCore.orig
    perl -pe 's/(\000)a(utocomplete\000)/\1_\2/gsi' < WebCore.orig > WebCore
    
    I still recommend 1Passwd, though. :)
