Default Automatic form filler (like Gator, but a clean one?)

Is there such a thing? I have a nice password vault but it's a pain always opening it every time I need to enter a pass on a website.

So is there a piece of software that does the same thing as Gator (auto-fill forms and passwords) but has, say, one password that "unlocks" all your information and other passwords but doesn't have spyware and crap like Gator?

You can store passwords with IE's inline autocomplete feature.
the Google bar can fill out forms.

Just for the record though, these are both very bad ideas.

Roboform works pretty well.

Mozilla (and Firebird) has a form manager and a password manager. I don't use those features, so I can't say for sure how well they work, but it's worth giving a try.

I've been using Roboform but it only takes 30 "passcards" and I don't want to pay $30(!) for the Pro version; I was hoping someone would have a freeware solution. Maybe I'll check out the google toolbar...

i wouldnt ever consider something like this, not because i'm concerned about it being clean, but once i get used to having myself automatically logged in, i'll forget the password. then if my computer ever died for some reason...
