Google Chrome Form Autofill Feature
Chrome is Google's web browser that offers fast and secure browsing with all the features other browsers have plus some of their own unique features. I'm sure you have some favorite websites that you go such as online shopping sites where you have to type in your address on different sites when you make a purchase.
Chrome offers an autofill feature that will let you automatically fill forms on websites that have form fields. This comes in handy when you don’t want to manually type in things like your address every time you want to fill out a form.
To get to the autofill settings open Chrome and click on the wrench icon in the upper right hand corner. In the Options window that opens, click on the Personal Stuff link on the left and then check the box that says Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click. This is assuming you have Chrome installe on your computer. If not you can download it for free here.
Now you want to click the button that says Manage Autofill settings and fill out the information for your addresses and credit cards if you want that information remembered in Chrome by clicking on Add new street address or Add new credit card.
When you are finished you will have your listings of addresses and credit cards available to use to automatically fill out forms. Then the next time you start filling out an online form, the autofill entries that match what you are typing will appear in a menu. Then you can choose an entry to automatically complete the form with information from that entry.
If you want to see how Chrome will autofill a form before it actually fills it out then you click in a form field with your mouse. You will notice how the fields that can be auto-filled are highlighted in yellow and your possible choices are shown from the autofill entries stored in Chrome.
