Turning off browser autofill/autocomplete

I love how browsers can save form data to make filling in forms quicker & easier – and reduce the chance of typos.

However… I have an admin system where my admin users login and maintain a stack of data and I want to have my own autocomplete options and suppress the browser from suggesting the user’s personal data.

Most of the “data entry” is done by people signing up and all the admins are doing is confirming and then generating content. When they do have to do “data entry” I want it to be as simple as possible.

I finally got around to looking at what’s possible only to discover that Chrome doesn’t understand about data entry requirements and ignores autocomplete=”off”. I can’t control the browser that my admins use.

Any tricks to getting autocomplete to turn off on data entry forms?
