KeyWallet is an old password manager that stores userids, passwords, other fields, and optionally the URL in a HD encrypted database - storage.kwo

I have used it for about ten years on two computers and four HDs and Windows 2000, XP and currently 7. It is browser independent, it works with all browsers. I still prefer it to any of the newer password managers - Lastpass, Keepass, etc.

I start it with the computer and keep it in the tray and display it always on top.

To use click the blue & white globe in the record - called a 'key.' Your default browser opens or a new tab if it is already running. Drag & drop the key into the userid to complete the form and, after the number of tabs you have told the script, it will enter submit.

There is no synching. After making a new record (key) I back up storage.kwo by exporting to myname.kwo on a USB stick so I can import it back to storage.kwo if the HD crashes.

What I like - it stores URL of important sites: bank, broker, USAA, PayPal, insurance et al so I do not store those sites in browser's bookmarks. Nothing of importance is in my bookmarks/favorites.
