Custom Chromium Build With Roboform Support

by Chrome Blog on September 26, 2009

For all you Roboform users who wanted to get it to work for Google Chrome, there is a nice work-around for this. Yesterday, Roboform launched a Custom Built Chromium Installer which adds a different looking Roboform Toolbar of sorts to the toolstrip at the bottom of the browser.

roboform for chromium

The whole installation process it a bit probematic but it definately does what it is meant to do. In order to get Roboform to work with Chromium you need to do the following steps:

  1. Install Roboform 6.0.97 or latest version from here.
  2. Once its done, uninstall existing version of Chromium (if any) from your computer.
  3. Install the Custom Built Chromium With Roboform on their site -> RoboformforChromium.exe
  4. Run the Chromium application, you would see the toolbar in the toolstrip (as in image).

Some Notes

This wont work for Google Chrome. You need to install the Custom Chromium Version from the above in order to get it to work. Since this is an alpha release, there might be some bugs and other issues with it which can be reported to Roboform. They stated:

“When Google finalizes their public extensions framework, we will make every effort to ensure that RoboForm will work for Google Chrome within a very short time.”

Whats Ahead?

This is the first toolbar of its kind which works in Chromium, the very base of Google Chrome. With Roboform taking this initiative, i guess other developers should also atleast release some beta version of their toolbars, this goes to Google as well, can we have a similar Google Toolbar please?

I don’t know what I’d do without RoboForm!!!
Thanks for this custom build…
honestly, I don’t care if I’m using “Google Chrome” or their open-source “Chromium”…

Thank you, RoboForm!
I can now switch back and forth between IE and Chromium effortlessly and enjoy RoboForm in both browsers!
PS: Can I use RoboForm with Skype? If so, how?

I used to use Roboform, but have found that the completely free LastPass is just as good and it imported all my passwords and forms from Roboform. LastPass has a Chrome plugin out as of about a week ago.
