I've used RoboForm (RF) for years....it is the first thing i install on any new laptop. Well worth the price. The key features I use RF are:
- Password Manager: Pretty obvious here. The key drawback to this is that it only works with websites so other apps I use can't have their PW autofilled by RF.
KeePass is good at that. It has a "cmd://" construct so you can call a program with the same Ctrl-U hotkey you would normally use to launch a browser with the URL.
- Bookmarks: Rather than using the Bookmarks in IE or Firefox, I use the feature in RF. Since I always have RF, I always have my bookmarks.
I use the excellent bookmark manager LinkStash
. LinkStash keeps secure passwords, so I've put most of the important KeePass ones into it as well. The very new LinkStash 2 doesn't seem to work on my old Win98 laptop, though, at least not yet, so I've gone back to 1.7.3 for now. Not missing anything critical.
- Safe: I use this to store software keys, etc.
I sometimes do that with KeePass, but I'm tending now to put them into an encrypted MemPad
file. Then I can keep all
the relevant information together, copies of e-mails, and successive generations of keys if they change on upgrading, etc.
I didn't like what I heard of RoboForm's business model, with online activation on specific computers (correct me if I'm wrong.) And, I make out Web forms so seldom that it didn't seem worth making the effort to adopt it, especially if the program doesn't have good import/export features, thereby keeping you locked in.
