    Recent changes to LastPass:
    v1.62.0 - December 2nd 2009

    * Multi-factor authentication for free all accounts: LastPass Grid [video]. LastPass believes all users deserve the security of multi-factor.
    * LastPass has a new website.
    * More multi-factor control -- you can specify that a particular computer does not need to be reprompted for your multifactor device -- be it Grid, Sesame, or Yubikey
    * LastPass now respects 'In Private' browsing mode in IE, Firefox and Safari and does not do any logging while in it. LastPass currently run in Chrome's private mode
    * The Chrome and Safari extensions have continued to improve -- Linux in Chrome is closing in on stable and Mac Chrome is right behind it. Hotkeys and copy username/password have been added to Chrome, multi-login notification bar for Safari. Group now has drop-down on both.
    * Google has once again disabled local database support for extensions, LastPass now notifies you this and tell you how to potentially resolve it
    * Chrome joins all other browsers with full offline support
    * You can now 'Give' in addition to 'Sharing' an account; this allows the password to be edited and seen in LastPass
    * Language support for Afrikaans, Icelandic, Thai, and Vietnamese
    * Support for importing form fill profiles from FireForm
    * Add support to see your other sessions (and to kill them), under LastPass Icon -> Tools -> Other Sessions
    * Resolved: Firefox now always uses a single combined icon file
    * Resolved: IE was potentially not obeying the logoff after browser closed for X minutes
    * Resolved: A few broken form fill cases on websites without proper HTML

    I was worried about trusting my passes to a third party but all the rave reviews about lastpass make it hard to pass up.

    As encryption is used and Lastpass use a 'salted hash' effectively not storing your key there's not much to worry about. They only store your email addy and password hint which is encrypted. Actually they go quite far in protecting you as you can read about at Lastpass.
    If you have the plug-in then even if their server goes down you can still login.
