There is a mention of a Symantec Connect Autosave in https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/article-parking - has there been any progress on this.  For me, the main problem I come across is that sometimes I copy and paste a hyperlink from an earlier thread in a discussion to reference in my reply and sometimes I click on the link itself, rather than just to the left when I am highlighting the link to copy it and then you are taken to the link and you loose all that you have written.  So I am looking for feature like you have in web email where your message is autosaved and/or if you try to leave the page, you get a message saying something like "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page and discard your message".

This is in the request queue. It isn't at the top priority right now, but will be considered as we work on the next iteration of Connect. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Any update on this.  I have just spent 30 mintutes writing a post and I pressed the backspace key to delete some text, but the context of the window was not on the text and so it is interpreting by the browser as go back one page and so everything is lost as Sym Connect does not prompt for "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page" - this is standard in so many editting sessions on the web - surely this is simple to implement?.  An autosave would be better, so that if you computer crashes you can still continue your post, but over 2 years later, if this is not going to happen then a simple "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page" if you are writing a post would save over 90% occurances of having to retype a post.
