autofill

A Web browser feature or plug-in that automatically inserts user data such as name, address and credit card number into the fields of a Web page order form or application. Autofill processing works by looking for data fields with common tags. If a non-standard name is used for certain fields, the form may not be completely filled in. See autocomplete.
