As I said: *I* am neither against nor for it. Because on the one hand it could cause security problems (since everything is not save and especially this this technology is very new and still in active development, so it's not tested in detail (yet)) and moreover it could make people forget their passwords, but on the other hand it's clearly simpler, faster and more convenient.

So; OK. On the whole, I prefer to let the end-user of IceCat decide whether to use or not use this feature.
