Re: Chrome saved passwords issue

Sure you can show passwords in FF, BUT they can be protected with a Master Password. Anything equivalent in Chrome, let me know!

Chrome saved passwords issue

I'm new to Chrome and prefer it over FF because it's faster. However Chrome doesn't protect saved passwords which can be unmasked at a press of a button!!! Therefore I still use FF daily.

Me too, I'm planning on suing Google. It is not the "English Channel", it's called "La Manche"!

There's a native linux version, but it only works for paying subscribers.

As I use the free version, I still use Wine. A minor compromise.

I agree

And could use a product like this for myself.

Can't see the point of this article being so negative about it.

Arianne 5?

Why doesn't the European Space Agency use a European company to launch its satellites?

An interesting alternative to passwords

is passfaces (http://www.passfaces.com). No need to remember multitude of complex passwords, just use your brain to recognise faces. Simple and secure.

Firefox saved passwords?

Just wondering, how is that better than Firefox's saved passwords and Master password, especially if you're using the Firefox sync extension to sync your passwords on several machines?

Mexican potty mouth

You honestly believe that swearing every two words will help emphasizing your point?

Troll, cause you're worth it.

Ps: I'm not British either.

Ryanair disses booking system security fears

Some of us just don't have a choice

There's simply no competition on some routes, thus making ryanAir almost compulsory.

That doesn't make us, its users, cheapscapes, or less deserving of good, friendly customer services and travelling in relative comfort and stress free environment, none of which is applicable to travelling with ryanAir at the moment.

Being characteristically arrogant is surely more important.

I call Bullshit!

"The test subjects were 91 software engineers working at a Mysore-based development firm"

That's hardly an unbiased survey. Shame on you El Reg for reporting on this obvious piece of trash.

Mine's the one with a copy of the Daily Mail in the back pocket.
