    I noticed that Google Chrome for Mac uses keychain for password storage. Does this mean using Chrome for saving/remembering passwords for sites is just as safe as using Safari to remember passwords for sites?

    Is one "safer" than the other?

    Note: I don't use any Chrome add-ons; running the stock version.

    There is no difference. Just use secure passwords. It is not the keychain that will be the point of failure.

    Yep, that is why I quoted "safer". I just wanted to confirm that having Chrome remember my passwords is as "safe" (even if not very safe) as having Safari do so, as they both use the keychain.

    Thank you.
