I don't think the prime location argument still applies. At least not
On the other hand, I believe that Internet cafes should really care more
about the privacy and security of their visitors. Password management
features should be disabled, but often are not, in Internet cafes.
But there's a reason why browsers provide password management, it's
called convenience. By telling the browser to disable that feature for
one particular website, you're not only protecting those clients who
check email in internet cafes, but also annoying those who do this at
home, using their own Personal Computers. Plus, this doesn't educate the
user at all.
This could at least be configurable by the administrator.
As an alternative, an unchecked-by-default checkbox could exist on the
login page, which would use JS to remove the autocomplete=off attributes
from the form elements when checked. This way, a user could at least opt
in to use the save password feature explicitly.
