1. Password strength meter
The password strength meter, as the name goes, is used to inform the Java programmer about the strength of the password, considering the uniqueness of the password and how easy or difficult it is to guess it. Ideally, the password should be a combination of numbers, letters and special characters. Webmasters have a bigger responsibility of encouraging their site users to choose highly unique passwords to prevent easy access of information to hackers.
Adding a set of instructions for creation of passwords on the account sign-up page is one way to do it, but not many people pay attention to them.
A password strength meter script, which is a real-time color meter indicator, allows you to visually display how weak or strong the password chosen by the user is. Including this safety script is a great way to encourage users to register with your site securely.

4. JQuery Autotab
Filling in details like the social security number or the credit card number online becomes easier with the JQuery auto tab script. This feature allows the user to move to the next tab automatically when filling in multiple input columns of a form for phone number, credit card number etc. it may seem like a very basic function but not all websites have it, emphasizing on the fact that it is underrated. The JQuery auto tab is not just important, but essential to make user experience a better one on your site.
5. Context highlighting in forms
Forms may seem like the simplest part of a web page, but are actually the hardest to create. Lengthy forms or forms with unappealing design or layout can put off the user, which is not good for your business.
Obtaining the necessary information from a potential customer is also made possible through forms, which is why it is important to have an appealing form design and functionality.
In any case, care should be taken to not use certain functionality, like the arrays, too liberally. If you do so in the name of enhancing user experience, the performance of the site can be negatively affected.
