I'm looking for an extension for chrome where if I'm filling out a form, it will be able to save everything I have filled out in all the feilds. The reason for this is sometimes I'm filling out contact forms, applications, etc. and I don't have all the needed information needed to complete the form. Some of these forms are quite lengthy so simply retyping in information again would become time-consuming. I then have to leave my browser and its tab open until I've found all the necessary information to complete the form. Having an extension like this where I could save what I have currently written would enable me to close the tab & browser if I wanted.

I would like the extension to meet these requirements:

  • Gratis
  • Compatible with Windows 10
  • Has a save form field feature
  • Has a restore form field feature (I can restore the content in the fields from a previous save)
  • 2
    On Firefox I've used Lazarus in the past, which is also available for Chrome so you might wish to take a look at it.

The only extension I've found (I've asked this question to see if there were any other extensions out there besides this one) is called "Form Save And Restore". It's a simple extension basically giving you a button that has two options,

  1. Save form as it is
  2. Restore previous saved form

This is about all it can do. I can't exactly look through what forms I have saved or have versions of saved forms. It does do the job quite well; though, and it allows you to fill out a form, install the extension, and use it right on the spot (some extensions require that you reload a page to start using it).

Form Save And Restore

This is a quick and dirty extension that simply saves the form as it is so that you can restore it later.

How to use:

  1. Fill out the form.
  2. Click the extension button to get the popup.
  3. Click 'save'. This copies the form data into localstorage.
  4. Come back to an empty form, by reloading or whatever.
  5. Click the extension button to get the popup.
  6. Click 'restore'. This completes the form with the data saved in localstorage.
