Chrome Autocomplete Warnings

On any machine that I use I have anywhere between 3-6 browsers installed. I have a few Firefoxes, Chromes, Safari, Opera and Brave. I like to keep a lot of different options because you never know what the news will bring. One of them might bring a new feature out first and you can start playing with those ideas quicker.

I started noticing new warnings in chrome after a recent update.

“Input elements should have autocomplete attributes”

The fix is easy if you get the warning it is just adding an autocomplete attribute that is related to your input field.
