Firefox:3.0 User Information Management and Privacy

A personal information manager would be great to have in Firefox - like "saved forms", only more structured, maybe with the user filling in their information in the preferences dialog.

Furthermore, I don't know to what extent Firefox uses P3P, but with the added focus on privacy it would seem wise to put some extra work into it. XForms <bind/> elements can have a @p3ptype attributes, which gives a very clear hint to the browser of what information is asked for (e.g. '' -> last name). Making auto-filling of forms easy and reliable is important especially for online shoppers, and therefore also the shops. This could push online shopping sites to use XForms and P3P.
