    I do not really think the whole thing is a good idea. People could still use an easy to guess master password which will mean the user is even more vulnerable. the other thing that could be a downfall is if someone chooses an easy to guess recovery question for the master account.

    We can remove the problem of you knowing your own passwords. I am a little disturbed by that.

    Also, by having Chrome generate passwords, they can lock you into their browser. How hard will anyone be willing to work to get those exported to another browser? The more I read about Google lately the more I want to never use them again. Maybe I am reading too much into it but everyone can make their own choice. Feel free to agree with me or ignore my opinion.

    Further in the page they talk about viewing and exporting the passwords.
