Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using a company website, and the Internet has become very spotty, due to an internal issue. When the Internet crashes, I get an error message from the site. Pressing the back button or refresh button reproduces the error. So, I have to close my browser (Chrome, latest), and log back into the site!

Typically, we lose 45 minutes of work (about twice a day). There are times, however, when hours of progress are lost! And sometimes it's difficult to reproduce data (for example, when we get data from a customer and the submit button fails after the customer has left our offices).

Is there a way to temporarily save all the form data on a page (like an add-on with a button I can just press, "Save current progress on this page."), and then have the data automatically resubmitted by pressing it again, later? Or perhaps, is there another work-around that I can work into my browser, locally?

I found this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/form-history-control/. There are two issues:

1) Everyone here wants to stick with Chrome and not install and use another browser--stubborn people. 2) This doesn't seem to fit the exact purpose. It uses 'the most recent values' and not saved values.

Have you already looked through the search results for "form" in the Chrome Web Store? If they don't meet your requirements, and you want a tailored extension for your company, contact me to discuss the details. –  Rob W Jul 8 '13 at 9:58

A Chrome Extension like Lazarus should be a decent fit.
