Gator replacement

I have a customer (I tutor on pc's) that loves Gator because she says it saves her time on filling in forms. I say don't use it. She just did a full reinstall so I told her to hold off on installing Gator until I can find a safe alternative. Is there one that is free or retail that will do the job for her?

I think Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firebird have these features built in, have never used it though. Take a look in the Internet Options, its in there somewhere.

Tell her that Gator sells that information to other companies and is probably the most unsafe thing she could possibly do.

AI roboform is absolutely THE best form filler out there. It saves individual sites info's as passcards and it also saves standard form info as identities.

i.e. a passcard for a site would contain username/pw

an identity stores fname, lname, phone number, email, etc

you can have multiple identies for different users or for different type of forms you want to fill (i.e a junk identity I use with all my junk email accounts)

Theres a freeware version you can try, but I've found this app so essential and useful that I got the pro version. No spyware or adware. There is integration with a lot of browsers out there (including my favorite myIE2)

Tech tv gave robo form a good review and yes no spyware

here

It does have some limitations with the free version unless you want to fork out $30

The google one however is free, but doesn't have a password manager
