Never Lose Your
Web Forms Again!
Ever typed in a long response to a blog post, support ticket or email and had the browser eat it after your connection timed out or something broke?
Lazarus securely auto-saves all forms as you type, so after a crash, server timeout, or whatever, you can go back to the form, right click, “recover form”, and breathe a sigh of relief
Save your forms! Get Lazarus!: http://getlazarus.com (Their website seems to have weak hosting so I’ve included the actual download links too.)
Available for Firefox, Chrome & Safari.
Lazarus is officially Mozilla recommended, top rated and downloaded more than 500,000 times!).
The Firefox version is a little better than the Chrome version due to Firefox letting the plugin interface more directly.
If you’ve ever had one of those “oh $*#@” moments when you’ve finally finished filling out a very long form, and hit submit only to see an error message… this is the add-on for you!
Once you install it, there is an FAQ here: http://getlazarus.com/FAQ
How do you know it’s working? You’ll see a little tiny ankh symbol (like in the logo above) in the upper right corner of the text box you are typing in. It will be faint in color and stay out of your way. It appearing there lets you know that your text is being auto-saved for you. Clicking on it brings up some options, including to auto-fill in what you had previously typed in that box. Score!
(If its a form you use regularly you will likely see your last couple entries available to you, as they are stored for retrieval.)
Check out this browser add-on, you’re gonna like it!
