If you deliberately accidentally type in your password wrong when logging in, notice the URL. The user name and (wrong) password is revealed. I'm not too worried, but just something you might be able to see.

I'm using this to my advantage, by letting me login in one click in my bookmarks.

It's in this format:

Or just check the box to have a cookie stored and login will be automatic without showing in the URL (a bit less obvious to someone looking over your shoulder).

Thanks for this hint manhinli, I've changed my bookmarks to auto log me in now too. Awesome.
