Sounds like a very interesting idea, and I can imagine how it works for
standard username/password. Do you have any ideas how to handle non-standard
logins, e.g. username/email/creditcard/password, or transaction numbers from
a TAN list (system used by all german banks)?

I agree. Our in-development code modifies login pages so that login is 
always done via our control in the Chrome - user never enters password 
in a web form (we can also auto-fill the password so users don't need to 
type it at all). Feedback?
