If you’re the type who keeps Chrome to the newest experimental build of the browser then you’re in for a nice surprise if you check out the latest version. Included in the build is a password generator that should give third party software like LastPass and 1Password a run for its money.


When you try to login on to a site that needs a password, you will see a prompt for a strong but very remember-able password. If you choose to use this password, it will be automatically saved to your Chrome passwords. Nifty, eh?

If you are one of those who has made the Chrome Canary jump, the same system is already available – but a couple of flags need to be activated. We warn you that if you don’t know what flags are, or you are not sure what on earth we’re talking about – you probably have no business tweaking Chrome Canary. If you’re sure you want to do this, head on over to the source link for the instructions.

While Google is definitely behind the third party apps in terms of this feature’s time online, the mothership is no stranger to overtaking competitors who were there first. If you’re brave enough, go give this a try and tell us how you like it.
