Thank you, John: that looks very interesting, especially since it offers 
Chrome and Firefox plugins, which I assume work on windoze machines 
although I haven't read the whole doc file yet.

Frankly, I think that having an unencrypted list of passwords in a .txt 
file would be better than using the same password on multiple sites, so 
any program that allows me to have well-protected password storage would 
be worth the work of synchronizing the files across platforms when a 
password changes, but I'm wondering what you all think about the 
algorithms currently being used to encrypt retained passwords in those 
browsers, and if pass is harder to crack/easier to use/more 
wholesome/less filling.

Thanks in advance!
