 @clonemykey Which browser and/or password manager saves your username and

 The username input currently does not discourage autocomplete, but the
 (plain-text) password input has `autocomplete="off"`
 ([https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=587466 which
 Chrome apparently does not honor yet]).

 Should the password's attribute be `autocomplete="new-password"` instead?
 It's probably good to add the "off" value for the username as well, for
 any browser that supports it.
