After Gawker got hacked, I started to rethink my password strategy, even though from all my checking, my password was not compromised, and it wasn't one I used for anything sensitive. I think I found the right solution, and thought I'd share it with anyone that is interested. I do want to put it out there, that I have no financial interest in the company. The software is called LastPass, and they have plugins for IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari and works on Windows, Mac, Linux and all the common mobile devices, though there are a few caveats on the mobile side. They do store your passwords, but in my research, they do it in a way that is impossible for them or anyone else to decrypt (unless someone can guess your master password), but then they take it about three steps further. Hope this is of help to someone. I'm not a crypto expert but can go into more detail of the security as I know it if anyones interested. I can go into detail for anyone interested, but it's as bulletproof as I think possible, and the end result is you can have each site you log into with a different random password that there are too many possibilities for a brute force hack, and if one site doesn't store passwords encrypted, it won't work anywhere else. Most of their features are free, except the mobile apps. That requires a Premium account, of $12 a year.
