    One thing that I missed alot in Ubuntu was Roboform. I've been a long time user of Roboform and couldnt imagine how I could be without it.
    For a while I settled with the firefox extension sxipper since it could import roboform data.

    The someone suggested Lastpass extension for firefox. First I was very sceptic since it stores the passwords on the net. Lastpass claims that they can not see my data since it is encrypted and the user is the only one who has the key to decrypt.
    But after looking for info if their claim is valid or not (could not find anything that accused them for lying) I chose to install it.

    It does basicly the same stuff as Roboform, and unlike roboform they chose to adapt to modern times and support Linux ;). Well, actually is so by nature of lastpass since it is web based. It works across OS and browser borders (dont know about MAC though) And of course it imports roboform data too.
    I recommend it for all the Roboform addicts out there. It takes a bit of trust unless you are skilled enough to verify their privacy claims.

    I dont know how it is better, or if it is, I have not tried secure login coz it doesnt mention that it imports Roboform data. I mainly look for that coz I dont feel like copy&paste 100+ passwords to train password managers :)
