Do you get tired of typing in all your passwords? We do, and while we know Firefox can save them for us, we're not always diligent (nor comfortable) in setting them up automatically. So, when we saw the rave reviews going around the net for 1Password, we decided to check it out for ourselves. 1Password is a secure password manager for MacOSX that allows you to save all of your web-based logins simply and securely. Instead of cluttering your home office with a password file, why not keep it paperless and secure on your home computer?

1Password costs $29.99, but can be downloaded and tested for free. Some of the highlights are password sharing between browsers on your computer, supports multiple identity profiles for auto-fill forms (personal, business, etc.) and will auto-generate secure passwords for new registrations.

It works as a plug-in on your browser's toolbar, and saves a few clicks and keystrokes. This may not seem like much, but over time it will allow you to browse the web much more efficiently and securely. For a demonstration, check out this video on their site. LifeClever also has a great review highlighting their experience using the program.
