Don’t get clever with login forms(bradfrost.com)

    Few remarks:

    1. Don't be clever with titles without capitals ;) This article has a main title and subtitles all not starting with the proper capital letter. Also, the different paragraphs are not numbered, so I can't refer to #1 or #2.

    2. Regarding Splitting up the signup process across multiple pages, that is being done for security reasons, and password managers can handle it pretty well.

    But for the rest, I think the article has a lot of valid points.

      I would add "don't make your section headers appear visually smaller than your body copy". The font Brad's using for the section headers, while technically 3pts larger tab the body copy, appears visually smaller because it's condensed and he's using all lowercase. Make that font like 28 or 30pt and adjust font weight if necessary. Also, use sentence or title case here.

      1Password does not handle multi-page logins automatically.

      In fact since switching I have been fairly consistently disappointed with 1Password's quality of auto-fill compared to LastPass. Kind of regretting switching my family over (I was tempted by the prettier design).

        Can't really compare to LastPass, but I've been happy with how 1Password handles various email then password logins.

      This is a matter of preference. Even if it is a little jarring to read an all lowercase headline, the article styling is internally consistent and doesn't take away from readability. If anything, you could argue the headlines actually stand out even more because of the lack of caps. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
