I wish there was a consortium for setting standards on form fields.
I fill out a lot of forms. As such, I assume that by now I can fill out a basic form asking for contact informaton and I should be able to use my browser’s auto-complete features. Yet, it doesn’t always happen. And it doesn’t always happen because developers are assigning names to their fields that thwart this practice.
For example, instead of assigning the name of “email” to an email field, they assign it the name of “session_key”.
Why can’t we just make things work for people?
