Recover Typed Text, Deleted Text and Lost Data In Web Forms Due To Page Reload or Other Reason

by Abhishek Bhatnagar on April 22, 2010


There are times when you are filling a web form which could be a sign up form or any other web form or text box on any website. For instance – you are writing a mail to a friend and suddenly you forgot to save and the page reloads and you see a blank white text box.


It could also may be a case when you might be registering for some web service and filled the long form completely but for some reason all the typed data inside the web form is lost and you realize that you will need to fill everything again this situation happened to me also – its really frustrating.


Lazarus is a free extension which comes both for Firefox and Google chrome which lets you recover the typed text which got lost in a web form. It 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.

Lazarus now comes with 2048-bit RSA and 256-bit AES hybrid encryption, so your form history is more private and secure than ever. It also includes search functionality so you can recover text even if you can no longer find the original form you entered it into.



In order to recover the typed form data, right-click somewhere on the form and Lazarus will give you the option to restore everything. It even works with revisions, so if you submit a change to your article but accidentally deleted a portion, you can restore the older version, copy the missing section.


When it comes to security this extension gives you the option not to save password you type in Web Forms and security features of this extension which will allow you to keep the information secure.

Install Lazarus For Firefox or Google Chrome
