I've come late to this thread. For sometime I've been using !Ffiler from 
Kevin Wells which is another similar app. http://riscos.kevsoft.co.uk/

From that page: "Form Filler (59KB) a form filler that sends text to where 
the cursor is. Ideal in filling web forms etc". This will store, I think, 
100 macros and is easy to use. I've tried !Makro, and can see no reason 
for my swapping this for Ffiler.
