Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Google Chrome Safari

The autocomplete attribute is supported in all major browsers.

Tip: In some browsers you may need to activate an autocomplete function for this to work (Look under "Preferences" in the browser's menu).


Definition and Usage

The autocomplete attribute specifies whether or not an input field should have autocomplete enabled.

Autocomplete allows the browser to predict the value. When a user starts to type in a field, the browser should display options to fill in the field, based on earlier typed values.

Note: The autocomplete attribute works with the following <input> types: text, search, url, tel, email, password, datepickers, range, and color.


Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5

The autocomplete attribute is new in HTML5.
