Web devs: what's up with this trend? For enterprise apps, I get it…single sign-on needs to detect what your email domain is to send you to your identity provider. For consumers, I feel like it's gotta be one of these reasons:
- Users don't know about the tab key being able to move to other fields on a page
- Mobile users don't really have a tab key, despite there being "previous/next field" arrows on the stock iOS keyboard since its inception (Android users, help me out please)
- Users tend to hit Enter after typing in their username, leading to a form submission with a blank password
- Security, maybe? In the past I have sent a link and a password in separate emails or separate communication methods entirely. Are you hashing/salting these separately for better MITM mitigation?
Did your UX team make a decision? Are my password managers forever doomed to need a "keyboard combo" value for every entry from now on?
Non-devs: do you prefer one method over the other? If so, why?
Tildes maintainers: selfishly, thanks for keeping these together :)
