    Automatic Field Population Within Internet Explorer

    If you are a typical internet user, you are likely registered with many web sites. Registering with new services can be quite irritating, as you have to enter the same information repeatedly. Most of the registration forms include the same fields like Name, Address, City, Country, Email Address, Password, and so on. You can save all this information in a web form filler or password manager and have it fill all the information in each form for you. There are many software applications available to do this, but I personally prefer AI Roboform.

    First of all, just download AI Roboform from and install it. It is compatible with both Internet Explorer and Firefox. After installation, just start up Internet Explorer and click on Setup Form Filling in the toolbar. Next, create a new identity by entering your name and country. After this step, go through the different tabs such as Person, Business, Address, Credit Card, Bank Account, Authentication and Custom. Enter all the related information pertaining to each tab. After you are done, click on Save and Close.

    Now whenever you log in to any website, click your identity name in the toolbar. All the fields the stored information in the form fields will automatically be filled in the current page with just one click. This will speed up your registration process greatly.

    Apart from saving form field details for automatic field population, you can also save your IDs and passwords. To do this, you need to create a new passcard. Go to the site you wish to log in to and enter your ID and password. When you are done, click Save and your login information is saved as a passcard. Now, whenever you visit that site again, the passcard linked to that site will appear in the toolbar. Click on the button and the ID / password fields will be populated.
