Opera, Google Chrome, Safari, iPhone, Opera Mini and more with Bookmarklets

LastPass has just released 3 bookmarklets to extend the LastPass experience to all the other browsers and mobile devices in your life.

We're very proud of implementing our complete Form Filling solution in a bookmarklet too -- Now if you want to buy something on your iPhone at an online store with your credit card you can do it in 10 seconds rather than 15 minutes (or not at all), it's amazing.

To get started you'll want to go to https://LastPass.com/ and sign in then hit Bookmarklets. If you're a new user -- go through the installer, then use your LastPass plugin to get all your passwords working before setting up the bookmarklet.
