1Password 2.7 released
Agile has released v2.7 of 1Password, its password management utility. The software is designed to remember a multitude of passwords, and help insert them automatically; it can also help fill out other forms, and generate "strong" passwords that are more difficult to guess or crack. The v2.7 patch adds a new Bookmarks window integrated into web browsers, which lets users rapidly log in to a site through a single mouse click or key combination, instead of several.
The software should now also function properly with Firefox 3, which with the "onepasswd://" extension could accidentally open hundreds of tabs and/or windows. The terms of the Family license have meanwhile been revised, allowing for up to five users. That version costs $50, while a Single User copy is $35; Mac OS X 10.4 or later is required.
