autofill web forms

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I am a doing a survey about Autofill Web Forms softwares.

Usually, they all collect information of the user once during the
set-up phase (user knowledge base).

Then, when the user navigates to a web form, the autofill software can
automatically partially fill the form. The solution can be mostly
differenciated by its intelligence algorithm for matching between the
information (fields) asked by the web form, and the one present in the
user knowledge base.

This matching algorithm can be:
-completly manual (for each field the user selects from a list)
-keyword matching (for example using the ECML v1.1 specification)
-more sophisticated :)

Some autofill softwares also continues to collect information each time
the user fills a form (not only in the set-up phase).

Do you know more information about it?
Do you know about interesting solutions/features?

ps: Let me know if you are interested in the result of the survey.

Some applications that I am trying. Let me know if you know about the
matching algorithm they use (there is very few information about it)
