Remember a few months ago when the Internet went crazy over Google Chrome keeping your saved passwords in plain text? Our advice, like that of many, was to use a third-party app like 1Password instead, but Google now at least is doing something about it. As described by Francois Beaufort on Google+:
Chromium is the bleeding, bleeding edge, so it isn't yet ready for the mainstream. But hooking access to your passwords in to your system password on your Mac is as good a way as any to protect them. Ultimately, it would be better if there were no plain text versions of your passwords available at all, but it's a start.
Does this help? Or, like us, are you still more comfortable relying on a third-party security app?
