Maybe http://www.passwordstore.org/ would work for you (although it's a CLI tool so no tabs). The tree of passwords is just a directory tree, one file per password, where each file is GPG-encrypted.

Example use:

pass -c shop/amazon

prompts me for my GPG passphrase, decrypts the password in the first line of that file, and puts it on the clipboard for 45 seconds before removing it again.

Subsequent lines of that file can be used to store anything you like in free text (e.g. username, account number, password recovery secrets etc)

You can synchronize it using whatever filesystem sync tool you like (dropbox, syncthing etc) or as a git repo.
