I plan to create a Cross-Browser (Major browsers) iPhone like password field. This field can show the last typed character for a short time (duration) and after it it masks (mask/shadow character) the password.
Any shadow character (Regular password fields can't be configured) Configurable mask time (duration:0 can be used to immediately mask the inserted text, and take the advantage of the custom mask character only) Copy-Pasted text (even with mouse) Any-selection replace or delete If a block of text inserted that the whole thing will be displayed, and masked on next change, or after the mask time Basically any well known text field operation works fine
Currently works for
Firefox, Opera (Works well in these) Chrome, Safari (They are slow to unmask the characters sometimes) and a little bit bugous in IE, but works well
You can read about it in HowToUse.
See how it works (The black text shows the actual value of the field that can be submitted through the form):
