  1. Managing own’s passwords is always an issue. You can break the compromise between strength and convenience by having a look to this web app :

    http://clipperz.com

    This site can help you to manage an entire keychain of secret data, with a very smart way : the algorithm and cipher is done on the browser side in Javascript (no data in clear neither on the network nor in the web site). You can rely on helpers to generate the strongest password, and never bother to remeber it. Backup is possible, with offline use : download your data in a single html page with all logic and ciphered data embeded.

    No more social datamining to reveal your passwords any more…
