(Whiteboard: [passwords:heuristics])

We can use field labels e.g. via <label>, name/id or just adjacent text like Form Autofill does to help identify the expected data for a field. Hopefully we can share this code with Form Autofill.

Examples:

  • Prefer a field with a "Username" label as the username (e.g. on a registration form) over an "Email" or "Zip Code" labelled field
  • Don't autofill if the label is "New Password" as we're probably on a change password form.
