    Anyone have any great tools or programs that have helped make them more efficient. Like I recently started using a program that lets me use abbreviations for long words that I type often and instantly replaces them. Saves me a lot of repetitively typing these long terms.

    What do you use that has helped you and you can recommend?

    Is that ShortKeys, I use the free version and it's excellent, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who does a lot of typing. Anyone interested can visit their site at http://www.shortkeys.com/

    No that isn't the one I've been using, but it looks similar. I may try it and see how it compares. Thank you.

    Thanks Patrick, that tool looks more detailed and comprehensive than the ShortKeys one, does it provide more utilities than the abbreviations to long words one?

    I am not fully explore it, the tool is quite advance. It can even record marco. The video demo that, we can run the short key together with input [enter] command. We can run [tab] and [paste]. Most important, it is free of charge and offer portable version.

    Detail documentation: http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm

    I've had a look at the http://www.phraseexpress.com/ site and it looks like a very helpful and convenient application. Do you use the free version?

    Thanks Mark. Informenter looks really neat! I use Chrome more than Firefox though. I see from searching that I'm not the only one wishing for something like Informenter for Chrome.
