Autofill / Description
The Autofill extension serves one purpose: fill form fields automatically on page load without any user interaction. This is its primary function, but it can do so much more. Chrome has a built-in autofill feature, but it doesn't work on all fields and requires you to select from a drop-down menu. Even if you're happy with Chrome's autofill, give this extension a try for more automation and power at your fingertips.
⋆ Set and forget — fill out forms in ZERO clicks! There's also a manual mode.
⋆ Form fields wizard — use the infobar to automatically generate autofill rules for you without having to look at the HTML code.
⋆ Easy to manage — create, sort, and duplicate profiles to better organize your autofill rules.
⋆ Quick access — add autofill rules using the toolbar icon or right-click context menu. Execute rules using hotkeys or the context menu.
⋆ Peace of mind — automatically save text fields in case Chrome crashes.
⋆ Regular Expressions — use powerful text matching patterns to identify fields to autofill.
⋆ Variables — use special variables to reference other field values, increment/decrement numbers, and output random data (numbers, alphanumeric characters, words from a set).
⋆ Site filters — restrict autofilling on a per-site or per-page basis.
⋆ Exceptions — specify pages or entire websites to exclude from Autofill (blacklist).
⋆ Import/Export — back up your autofill rules and settings. Restore your data from a local or remote file. You can also import your data into the Autofill add-on for Firefox.
⋆ Keyboard shortcuts — navigate Options using the mouse or the keyboard for improved accessibility.
⋆ Localized — Portuguese (Portugal) and Simplified Chinese supported. Translate Autofill into your local language if it's not currently listed.
PRIVACY & SECURITY
Autofill does not track your browsing history in any way, nor does it transmit any data over the internet. All data remains on your local hard disk drive at all times. However, the data saved by this extension is NOT encrypted, so any data you save remains in the clear, although it will remain on your hard drive and only someone who knows where to look and has physical access to your hard drive would be able to access it. Your activities are also not monitored by Google Analytics or equivalent tracking tags.
The following permissions are required by this extension:
⋆ host (http://*/*, https://*/*, file://*/*) — allow Autofill to operate on all non-secure pages, secure pages, and local files. This permission displays the warning "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit". Technically, Autofill has to be able to "read" the data (to detect form fields) and "change" the data as well (to fill out the form for you); however, Autofill does not and will never track your browsing history.
⋆ contextMenus — add Autofill to the right-click context menu. This permission displays no warning message.
⋆ storage — store data on your hard drive. This permission displays no warning message.
⋆ unlimitedStorage — allow unlimited storage (without this permission you would only be able to store 5 MB of data). This permission displays no warning message.
⋆ webNavigation — detect when a web page is loaded to reset the icon badge count. This permission displays the warning "Read your browsing history" (Autofill does not and will never track your browsing history).
