Chrome, Firefox blab your passwords in a just few clicks: Shrug, wary or kill?

The only reasonable objection to this is that if they do provide a master password, then when people realise that this isn't a cast-iron guarantee of security Google will crop another dusting.

Solution: when Chrome offers to save your passwords (for the first time) or when someone sets the master password, just put up a damn dialog box warning that it's only superficial protection.
