@nakedweb I’ve found an interesting page. It says:

At this time, there is no known workaround to disable the native browser autocomplete attribute. Therefore, the native suggestion box may be redundantly displayed during user interactions with the AutoComplete control.

So it seems as if developers aren’t able to control the users’ browsers’ autocomplete option.

Edit: Lol, @coffeendonut ‘s solution was extremely simple. I guess the Yahoo article was published a while ago.
