Since I got 1Password, I pretty much stopped using keychain for websites.

Note that 1Password integrates with browsers, but not other apps like Mail. So I still use keychain to store my mail passwords.

(I find it strange to say that I "use" keychain, because I don't really interact with it at all. But I know that when I set up my email accounts, I clicked a checkbox to store my passwords in my keychain.)

Also, I use the 1Password random password generator for every website I visit. I have my defaults set to choose 19-character passwords that mix digits and letters. It lets you generate up to 50-character passwords, but very few websites allow passwords that long. It also lets you include symbols, but lots of websites don't like passwords with non alphanumeric characters.

(And what's even worse, I've found some websites that let me enter a password with symbols, but then won't let me log in with that password!)
