Apple's Safari browser for
OS X, has some form of password management built-in, and when you visit a site that requests authentication, the browser should prompt you to save the entered credentials just like Opera mini.
However, some Websites may be specifically built so browsers will not store passwords.

This feature is common with some sites, such as banking and medical sites which contain private and sensitive information; however, there may be others that you use for more benign purposes, which still prevent Safari
from saving passwords.

When you encounter one of these sites, Safari may show you a small message at the point of password entry which claims the site has
requested Safari not save your password.
For these sites, Safari can still save the password, though it is not a default option.

How can I do this?

To do this,
- Go to the Passwords section of Safari's preferences.
- You will see a checkbox at the bottom of the window which says
"Allow AutoFill even for websites that request passwords not be saved."
- Check [√] this setting, and you should now be able to save your site's password.

Note:- With this setting, Safari
may try to save the passwords for financial
and medical services as well, so to prevent saving passwords for these sites due to security reasons you may
have to be a little more careful when prompted to save your password.

What if I mistakenly Save it?

If you do inadvertently save a
password, you can easily remove it by again going to the Passwords section in Safari's preferences, searching for the site, and then selecting it and clicking the Remove button. That's all.
