    So when you go to enter a password on a site, it will show the last character you have typed! Then after a few seconds it hides itself again...
    :D

    I hope this hasnt been posted before,

    at first I thought it was a bug, but then I though... "this is actually a kind of nice feature, because entering passwords on the iPhone is kind of a pain in the butt if you hit just one wrong button...

    anyway...


    (BTW, it looks like safari is more standards compliant in this version too, although that is probably because of the new webkit build)

    Yep! Really nice =).

    I can't remember if it was beta 3 or 4 that started using this.

    They should give you an option to actually save passwords.

    My old crappy Motorola RIZR did this. Though I was hardly ever (see: only once) on the canned browser on that thing. It made sense at the time, having to use the numeric keypad to enter letters was clumsy, and using this feature made it more accurate.

    edit: SO! The seventh letter of your password is 'r'...

    The passwords do save. Safari has cookies on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

    The only problem is that when they went to 1.1.3, Apple forgot to change the permissions of the cookies folder (Apple Daily Times has a fix in Installer for this).

    I think it's fixed in 2.0 (since they rewrote it completely anyway).

    Edit: Unless you're talking about Auto Complete...

    haha,
    that is what I was typing... :p

    I agree that would be nice, but I do like the 1Password solution, which will let you login to anything. It is just too bad you cant actually save new passwords on the phone itself.
