I read somewhere that Google is using AJAX for this feature.

At least part of (if not all of) this would need to be done on the client side. You can view client side Javascript by right clicking on the browser screen and choosing the "view source" option.

Often the client side code will give you enough hints as to what needs to be done on the server end.

Also: Is it possible that you are confusing application specific functionality with features of the browser itself? I know FireFox and MSIE have the ability to remember usernames, passwords, and some other form fields.
Again, a quick look at the client side source should let you know.

Ashok, please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please continue any discussion of this topic in your HTML forum post.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
