You guys are the best ...

This is a much needed feature, and many forms can benefit from it.

Ecommerce checkout comes to mind as the obvious one.

Register and Post comes to mind (e.g. a site that will prompt users to
register then post something [resume, classified ad, ...etc.])

Thanks you all.
