Painless Form Filling On Internet Explorer

A while back I discovered Firefox Form Saver - which, as the name suggests, automagically fills out a web form for you once you've filled it out previously.

To say that it's an incredible time saver is an understatement.

But, I've mostly switched to IE for web development, and while I searched around, I couldn't find an equivalent plugin for IE.

That is, until last night.

Turns out, it was under my nose the whole time. The super useful and well implemented IE7Pro plugin has just the functionality I'm looking for. It's too bad they don't make more noise about it, as it's one slick feature.

To use the form saver, install latest IE7Pro Plugin. Visit a form of your choice and hit:

  Control + [

Name the form and save it. Now, anytime you need to reload the form for that page, hit:

  Control + ]

Couldn't be easier and couldn't be more useful.
