If you paste the following simple JavaScript into your address bar after the starred password has been filled in, the password will be revealed automagically!

Java Script: javascript: alert(document.getElementById(‘Passwd’).type=’text’);

Thanks, Matt, for an excellent and informative screencast again this week.
