    New Apple user here. I just bought an iMac for home use after being a lifetime Windows user and have been spending the past couple days getting familiar with things. One of the things I noticed when poking around was that in Safari>Preferences>Passwords that there's already a long list of websites I've only previously visited on my old Windows box and their associated passwords. I was wondering how Safari got access to them since I haven't made any transfers or connections between these two computers.

    Could it be from when I downloaded the Chrome browser and logged on to my Google account? I don't think this would have anything to do with the same router I've been using, would it?

    Nothing critical here, just wondering?

    Yep... Chrome uses OS X Keychain to store passwords, so Safari will see them from that Keychain list.
