HOWEVER, there is another way to steal email exploiting Browser Auto-complete/Auto-fill, by embedding hidden input filed into HTML form. You can check out this web article for details: Prevent Autofill From Stealing Your Personal Data.
Most Browsers already fix this blind autofill features, Chrome required a mouse click intervention to trigger the auto-fill. Nevertheless, one should not take the patch for granted. So it is a good idea to disable auto-fill or remove crucial personal info in auto-fills.
