in reply to Single Sign-On?

Frankly speaking, I feel the effort is not worth it. For this kind of sites, I am comfortable with storing the password in the browser (especially since I can manage the passwords neatly with Mac OS X' keychain). This is much easier for me than to ask people to implement a single-login system :-).

    I use MacOS's keychain as well, and an encrypted text file as a backup. Keychain IS single-sign-on. It could technically work the same way with a 3rd party administrating, if you could trust them enough. For many people (myself included), this trust issue means that MS was the absolute least qualified company imaginable (with the possible exception of SCO) to launch something like that. Most people trust their own machines more than any companies, thus it works better that way.

    That is basically how I feel. I do seem to loose alot of my username and passwords when I run one my disk cleaning utilities without disabling the browser password manager option. I have found this tool extremely useful...
