I will try it.

Yes it does. But I'm talking about saving the user/pass for the overall

In my browser at least doesn't work

When doing it with gtk (for example when you enter a Wep key), you get
for a moment the caracter you are typing so you know exactly what key
you have pressed. I think this is very handy when you have so reduced
keyboard and you don't know exactly what you typed.

Yes. This is why some Open source browser would rock. Because no one but
Opera can access to the source.

Also, one thing I missed to say is that I would like to see some
integration of the bookmarks inside the browser with del.icio.us
