It's the only option left to deal with reality for people that have a clue.

Aaaand it's in Chromium too.  Damn.  And it was such a fast browser...  :(

Just had a look and Comodo Dragon does implement a Master Password:

Appears to work the same as Firefox's.

Google's response has always been the same: not interested.

Besides, it would be just one more thing to wring their hands over and whine about "not legally being able to talk about it" next time the NSA comes calling...

Wired's response is basically, "Shut up. This is normal."

Wired is no longer Wired as many of us remember it - and hasn't been since 1998. Wired is now owned by Advance Publications and managed by their Conde Nast <*choke*> subservient subsidiary company.

Need more really be said?

The only thing Wired is much good for any more is covering issues that require membership in the International Brotherhood of Holier Than Thou Journalists because of the access and financial backing that comes along with it.

This isn't really that new, people have been asking for a Master Password feature, (ala Firefox), in Chrome since about 15 minutes after it obtained the ability to store passwords.

Google's response has always been the same: not interested.

So don't let it store passwords at all, and do something with lastpass / roboform / password gorilla / keepass / whatever instead. Or, hell, run your browser from a Truecrypt container.

There's always another way to skin any given cat. :)
