With this shot I officially declare the password hinting project more or less completed.

I think it's a cool and creative idea. But to play mr buzzkill - I think the "ROI" so to say isnt necessarily worthy it. You might as well just have the form autosubmit as soon as they keyup on the right password since you're doing all the server-hits anyways.
But even if I wouldnt implement it on a site of my own - I like your designs of it a lot haha.
@Alex - Auto-submit is not an option because of the false positives (the check will return OK for some invalid username and password combinations, and this is by design for security reasons). That said, I am not advocating using this technique, it's a spontaneous UI experiment... with most of time spent on these damn pictograms :)
I think the whole project rocks Alex, really innovative. Keep on rockin' man.
Nice icon work. Very crisp.
I'm not trying to play mr buzzkill, but mr keep dribbblin.
I love the concept, but I feel that your project has missed it's main goal objectives. The 'hinting' at the right does not indicate that i am any closer to my password entry being complete until it is complete.
i have three or four passwords i use for different things. with your live demo i can start typing any password i choose, the hint indicator flashes the same whether or not i'm typing the correct words toward entering inconsequential correctly or entering my own password for my gmail.
i feel that the hinting would work more accurately and assist if it only gave a response as correct letters were entered toward the completed password.
as of now it is only an indicator that the correct password was completed.
i'm really trying not to rain, but rather keep you going, cuz i think it's a great idea and an amazing visual execution.
@Alex Pankratov Well that must be why I love the pictograms so much :)
@Alex Pankratov Are you planning to release this project?
I'm building a CMS and then I remembered that I have tested this before. My purpose isn't really to make password hinting telling if password is (in)correct by showing the square fully black, but to help user knowif it is correct by recognizing a pattern.

@Oscar - It is as released as it gets :) What you described is much simpler than what's in here, and it requires no server interaction - just get the password, hash it and then generate a pattern based on it. You can probably adapts parts of password hinting code for your purpose, but it shouldn't be that complicated anyway.
