Gator/Form-Filler Replacement

Fred, I’m a long time reader of the PLUS edition and really enjoy it. I’ve been using Gator for passwords, credit cards etc and I Feel it’s does a good job, but I’m fed up with all the trash that goes with it. Is there a program that I can buy that will perform as well as gator and be trash free? Thanks, Don Nicholson

Indeed there is: We first discussed it about a year ago in http://www.langa.com/newsletters/2001/2001-08-20.htm#4 : It’s "RoboForm," available from http://www.roboform.com/ .

There’s a free version, but I liked it well enough to go for the Pro version; I have my copy running all day, every day. Highly recommended.
