Not quite with you there, Pat. I am not familiar with roboform, but just had a quick look at their homepage. There is an option in IE/Firefox/Waterfox, to save passwords. Is this a different proposition?
Yes, Roboform is a third party app wich integrates with FF and IE to save passwords but much more. I've used it for years as a secure and portable means of managing passwords and online form filling. WF and FF seem to share somuch that I half expected Roboform to work but although I ran only a superficial trial it seemed not to.
I have never trusted the security of the browser's password capabilities. I use Last Pass myself. It appears to be similar to RoboForm. I like the better encryption. All I have to remember is one master password to sign into Last Pass. Last Pass also has Form Fill capabilities which saves me a lot of time.
Back to the thread. I have just been doing some checks. For "pushing the limits" I go on a particular online game site. I have discovered that Waterfox is using about two to three times more CPU resource than IE or FF.
I tested this within the first week it was available some months ago, and I can't say it's very good. Some of the nightly builds were better (64 bit versions) than this waterfox they had. I found it very buggy with caching issues actually.
