Suppose you write a lengthy wiki page but accidently hit refresh or the back button? You'd be out of luck most of the time. I know I was. But with this hack, a link called "Restore Form" will allow you to retrieve your data from your last save. Any time you navigate away from a form page, the contents will be saved in a cookie and when you return you can simply click "Restore Form" to retrieve it.
