    with many sites, i put in my username & password (or enter it from the keychain), then click 'enter' or 'sign in' etc... and am in.

    suddenly, it seems that after i enter my password... i'm just in. is this new in safari on the 10.14.4 beta? anyone else notice this? once the password is entered, safari seems to just sign me in.

    Yes, it now automatically logs in after you autofill.

    nice. one less thing to click on... and (for me, anyway) the cursor now waits in the password window when i install software, or change a system preference. for some time, i had to move the cursor there & click in the password window.

    soon, the OS will do everything, and i can just sleep. :D

    That's good to know! It always annoyed me that the cursor was not already prepopulated in dialog boxes.

    it was always that way, but changed in the recent past; annoying as hell, so good to have it back (i just checked, works on both my macs).

    Related (ie, password credentials in Safari):
    After the last beta I have to sign with Touch ID (I have a MBP 2017) to let the system enter the credentials for me. This is quite annoying, is there some preference to turn this off?
    Before, the user and password was stored in the Keychain and I could just choose the account and the credentials was filled in – no need for any Touch ID.

    Followup: There is a system preference called Touch ID, where you can alter this.
    /fwiw

    it seems that my Keychain has stopped syncing with iCloud in the latest beta... it's got my keychain all jacked up.

    a small problem with auto-signing in... not being able to check 'keep me signed in' (and similar messages), because the window's closed once i input my password.

    the workaround (which i'll have to adapt to): select 'keep me signed in' first, the login...
