To be serious for a second: I don't believe it's a good idea to build websites that are capable of being logged into automatically especially any when any vital information is not stored in a secure domain. Banks, for example, sometimes outsource their IT dept to a part time contractor..I believe that most identity thefts are caused by someone who first obtains a stolen computer.
However, if you are willing to take that risk. Firefox has a password manager that can remember enough login info to fill all available HDD space.
