Form-filling with Sxipper

In: Tech Reviews

23 Oct 2008

First, let me qualify this by saying that I’ve been using Roboform for years, so there’s a natural reluctance to change how I do things.

I found Sxipper too much of a departure from Roboform’s unobtrusive form-filling to be a good fit for me. Especially annoying was the way the entire page dimmed when a Sxipper form-filler pop-up appeared. I also found it to be too difficult and time-consuming to train the majority of the forms that didn’t work with Sxipper (about half of all forms I encountered.) I register for a lot of sites and generally speaking, I only register once per site, so training a site-specific form is an exercise in futility. I find Robo-Form to be more effective for my needs in this area – just fill it out and be done with it.

I think that Sxipper is a beautifully designed product with a couple of neat features – the idea of training a form for the benefit of others who will use the form is nice – and I look forward to seeing the product when it is mature. For now, though, my heavy-duty form-filling requirements are best met by RoboForm.
