The Important Field In Web Forms

The Important Field

The latest xkcd comic; the hover text reads:

I hear in some places, you need one form of ID to buy a gun, but two to pay for it by check. It’s interesting who has what incentives to care about what mistakes.

It seems like lately, a lot of the newer sites realize that the double-typing check is a huge waste of time for almost everyone and they don’t generally require you to double-type anything, including the password. For example, RunKeeper has three fields and no double-typing for their sign-up form. In the industry, they call this frictionless sign-up.
