    Can someone explain to me why Microsoft has yet to complete this simple task of being able to save passwords and usernames on IE?? I think it is so annoying I have to keep typing these out everytime I go into something.

    i think mine does, i shut down all the windows so when you press the back key all you get as a shrunken screen is the tile desktop. i go into IE, select on of the forums i'm on from my favourites list and i'm still logged in. try going into the settings option when you have IE open, press the 3 dots bottom right on the screen, settings is at the bottom of the list so you have to scroll down to it, press advanced settings, scroll down ( swipe finger upwards ) and tick the box ' allow sites to store files on my phone' and see if that helps???

    It does for me, at least for some sites. However, one of the dumbest things they did was not giving you the option when deleting history to not delete usernames/passwords, unless I just dont know how.

    It has cookies.

    It does not autofill usernames and passwords.

    Big difference.

    I know but i really find this inconvenient at times. MS should change it to delete history etc not usernames and passwords.

    Agreed. Sadly, MS has lagged behind in the browser dept in general for about a decade not, at least. And it sure as hell shows. One if the few things I envy about Android is real browser alternatives with extra features and standard features. IE mobile lacks even basic features which sucks and is embarrassing

    On my 710 it saves passwords fine, but yea, deleting the browser history / cache obviously deletes passwords, just don't visit sites you don't want cached ;)

    There are plenty of alternatives though.

    Here's a lesser known one that is quite good:

    http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...f-d1899003fee0

    It's in English, and it will install as "cute browser".

    There's also UC Browser, offline browser, incognito browser...
