Recently I ran into an issue where the browsers “auto complete form” feature was butting heads with some “auto suggest” functionality we were developing.
There are two main solutions that I was able to find regarding the problem. One was based in javascipt and the other using an html attribute. The challenge is that the attribute was created by Microsoft and thus is considered invalid (and yet other browsers have adopted it).
Using the attribute is pretty simple, just add autocomplete=”off” and your input tag and you’re golden.
<input type="text" autocomplete="off" />
