    On Mac OS X Snow Leopard, is it safe to store passwords in Safari or is there another place I should store them?

    Safari uses Mac's Keychain application, which is considered safe and secure. Other options consist of 1Password and KeepassX.

    Does keychain work with other browser? Like Firefox, Chrome?

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately Firefox does not, but Chrome does.

    Thanks for that reply. Truly, I am getting kind of sick with fox. I run about 120 tabs continusly open and lately, it has been crashing.

    Might have to migrate to chrome.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Cool forum.
