Our Review:

There's no doubt that RoboForm is the stand-out product in the category of Web Form Filler and Password Manager; it's fully featured, easy to use, seamlessly integrated into both Internet Explorer, Firefox and even Google Chrome browsers, and is constantly being enhanced by the developer. It also allows your saved passwords to be used on any PC, which is very convenient if you use multiple machines or are upgrading.

I do have a major reservation though: The free version allows only 10 forms or passwords to be stored. This used to be 30 in earlier versions, which was adequate. However, 10 passwords is not enough for most people and that really defeats the purpose of a password manager. What's the point in having a password manager if it cannot manage all of your passwords?

NB: If you use Internet Explorer, there's some good news: the last free version of RoboForm (V5.7.6) that allowed 30 passwords is still available from the RoboForm web site, though it's well hidden in the FAQ. Firefox users are out of luck, because you can't use this version with the current version of Firefox.

It appears that the new free version of RoboForm - v8 - allows an unlimited number of passwords rather than the old 10. However, it does not allow syncing across several devices. There is a good article about it here www.infopackets.com/news/10120/explained-roboform-8-free-or-not-yes-few-caveats.

Has anyone here tried it and does this change alter the above rating?
