Any form filling tool that doesn't slow down your computer like robofom does?

Profile picture of the author satrap by satrap Posted: 01/03/2011
I have been using free and for the past year the paid version of roboform, but it is killing me with the slow down. I mean, it would be faster for me to copy past and sometimes probably type the whole thing in form instead of using roboform.

I was using it with firefox, so I thought maybe Google chrome would help. I installed chrome and its lighting fast, but as soon as I attached roboform to it, it went down. it went from blazing fast to almost like a dial up speed!

Do you guys have the same problem? Is there any other tool out there that doesn't slow down your computer that much? I don't mean just a user name and password filling tool, I mean one that can give you custom form options just like roboform?

I would appreciate any feedback.

    I like lastpass myself too. It works very well, and I have not noticed any significant slowdown in my browser/computer after starting to use it.

    I agree with the others. LastPass blows Roboform out of the water, and it's 100% free!

    Looks good......

    What I do not understand though....

    Roboform or Lastpass has all your passwords in their database, to me that sounds scary. I mean, the whole point of a password, is not letting anyone have it right?

    I'm also concerned about that. However, I use Lastpass only for "not so important" websites. For e-mail accounts, online banking accounts, online payment accounts (such as Paypal), and other websites that hold sensitive information, I don't use any password manager. I simply remember these passwords or store them in my mobile phone for convenient access.

    I don't save passwords for banking or other important sites. These are for article submission, forum registrations and etc.

    Thanks Paulie and others for the suggestion. Does lastpass allow for custom fields?
    I was using roboform free, but I was limited to making only 3 custom fields. But if you upgrade you get unlimited, which is very helpful. Say you are doing article submission, you can use custom fileds for artcile title, tag, body and etc, since most form filling tools are limited to email, personal info, username, pass and address and dont have "article title", "tag", "description" and etc fields, so you can make them yourself.

    Is that what's slowing down my 'puter?!? I just spent A LOT for a custom built laptop and I'm ready to chuck it out the window.

    As far as Roboform goes, I'm really irritated with them in general right now. I've been drinking the Roboform Pro "koolaid" for a long time and now they're charging to upgrade their program. So, I pay for this "upgrade" and the Mult-line custom fields in their identities has disappeared, which is HUGE if you use it as a tool for semi-automated submissions.

    The response that I got from their support (which took about a week) was that it would be "fixed in the next release". no eta.

    It is encrypted, and even Lastpass themselves cannot get to it. This is common with password sites. You don't have to worry about that part of it.

    When I first joined forums I assumed the forum admin could see my password and everything in my profile. It turns out that even with the free forums like SMF, that cannot be done.

    I figured as much but thanks for confirming. Still, I don't save my banking or Paypal passwords, even though I pretty much knew it is as you say....just the thought of those important passwords floating around in cyberspace.

    keep smilin'

    I been using LastPass for the past year and love it. I'm still on the free version and thinking of upgrading and wonder should I try RoboForm instead? Judging from what I read it sound I'm ok to just stick with LastPass and save myself some time to copy all my passwords over.

    Any comments? Thanks.

    Hi satrap,

    It also filled the cup by me, so I changed from Roboform to LastPass about one months ago. Didn't regret it at all.

    Best,

    Sandor
