Unmask your passwords

var els = document.getElementsByTagName('input');
  for(var x = 0; x < els.length; x++) {
    if(els[x].type.toLowerCase() == 'password' ) {
      var test = els[x].type = 'text';

If you put javascript: at the beginning of that, and delete all the newlines so that it becomes a one-liner, you can delete the text in your browser’s address bar and paste the JavaScript snippet in the address bar instead, then hit the Enter key. This will cause masked passwords to be revealed.
