Although most of us choose to use one web browser for accessing the internet, we still need to remember multiple passwords, login information, security for our homepage and need to enter the same information in to the numerous web forms.

Many of the recent browsers enable you to automatically populate web forms with information stored within the browser. This includes basic information such as our name and address.

However, the security aspects are still kept separate from the forms and after a while, a cookie will expire and we'll need to enter the security information from scratch.

Wouldn't life be much easier if we could find a tool that would enable you to collate the secure information you enter in to a web form and then automatically fill in this information, no matter what browser you may be using?

Roboform has been around for eons and will remember the details you enter into a form, when you surf the internet. Better still, it encrypts the information so that only you are aware of the security information Roboform has stored.

Through a service called GoodSync you can use Roboform to share your information across each computer where you've installed the service. This means that you can use Roboform at work, at home and on your laptop, with the same information available across all three computers.

Note that there are two versions availible, one for Mac OSX users, another for Safari on Windows. This is a native Mac version of RoboForm which runs within Safari and provides native Mac functionality similar to the Windows version of RoboForm.
