Chrome/Chromium has a nasty handling of the html attribute 'autocomplete=off' : it doesn't respect it.

 

It has raised a lot of complaints from developers (but Google seems that is not listening):

 

https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=914451&sort=%20rank%20-ID&hotlist_id=5199

 

https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=587466

 

I want to ask if Edge will be honoring 'autocomplete=off' or it will follow the Chrome steps.

Hi @DPierangeli, right now we will have the same behavior as we share the same Chromium code base.  I will raise this issue with our platform team to see if they will consider adding it to the list of Chromium issues that we are fixing.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

@Elliot Kirk Thanks!

@Elliot Kirk Did the platform team have a stance on this? Properly respecting autocomplete='off' is important to a lot of people.
