Will the browser ever save passwords?
Question should read "Will the browser ever work?"
same answer. soon.
Perhaps never. Part of this is many cars are accessed by other people:

So you put in that password for Bank of America, and it allows anyone who has access to your car to transfer all your money out of your account. Have a Tesla account with saved password? Someone could order accessories and have them shipped to another address. All sorts of reasons that password saving is a bad idea in a car's browser.
A better solution would be phone display mirroring, where the browser runs from the phone where you have more security. Still, no idea if this will happen someday or not. My guess is there are some messy technical challenges due to vehicle regulations.
You guys actually use that slow browser?
The browser does save the password for a while (about half a day) already. For some reason, after authentication, it forwards to the tesla account page automatically.
I wanted to use it for Tesla Waze and Tesla Winds, but it only worked for about an hour. Now I just get a blank white screen. It won't even load Google's search page.
I wouldn’t use the browser. Only Tesla can clear the cache and I don’t want it to take up useful memory.
There's a browser?
I always use the browser, works great with my BlueIris Security software to monitor my place. I can remotely open and close my gate and unlock my doors and using the browser, double check my video feeds. Great for keeping an eye on those Amazon delivery guys.
