Yeah, it is a bit scary how easy this information is to come across. I use Google Chrome and have the sync feature enabled myself. I don't have my browser remember too many of my passwords and I do try to make them unique, so getting 1 won't get you into too many places. That's the issue with security, if you visit 15 sites, and have 15 passwords, without these types of technologies it's hard to remember them all. It's just too bad that with Chrome that it's so easy to just sit down and snarf up any saved passwords. I do like the Master password feature of Firefox, but do not really want to flip back to using FF as my browser after having gotten used to the Google Chrome sync feature and how well it works.
