Microsoft Working on Reveal Password Feature for All Chromium Browsers
#1
Quote:Microsoft, which is now one of the largest contributors to the Chromium browsing engine, has recently started the work on a new feature that would eventually makes it way to Edge, Chrome, and the other applications based on the same project.
 
Specifically, Microsoft wants to implement a reveal password option that would technically allow users to see the text as they type in the password field on a website.
 
A [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] discovered by [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] indicates that the password reveal tool would also come with hotkey support, meaning that users can just press a keyboard shortcut to see the password.
 
“This change implements the reveal button for . The button is added using same pattern as the clear/cancel button for except that instead of using -webkit-appearance to draw the button, we use svgs defined in controls-refresh.css,” the commit reads.
“A keydown handler is added to support Alt-F8 hotkey to reveal/obscure password and logics are added to make sure the reveal button only appears with direct user input. If the password is not empty in the first place (ex. autofill or value=xxx) or the control loses focus and regains focus, or the value is changed by script, the reveal button won't show.”

Needless to say, this is just work in progress for now, so it could take a while until the feature shows up in Microsoft Edge or Chrome.
