    • Previously used values of emails should have been listed as we have provided the autocomplete attribute as email. What is the use of providing keyword in autocomplete attribute if we have to provide the name attribute as email. Shouldn’t the autocomplete attribute be independent of the name attribute.

      And compare the side by side behavior to Chrome - you are getting different results?

      Just want to make sure that I am understanding this properly first.

    • Yes it is different from chrome which honor the autocomplete attribute. If I provide autocomplete attribute as name and name attribute as email. Then chrome will suggest name and internet explorer will suggest email

    • While that may be true in IE - we are not working on IE feature bugs any longer using this website. Edge seems to be providing the same results to me as Chrome in relation to your previous comments.
