You asked so I told you. <br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>I don't want to install useless extensions just to be compatible with a site that should have been designed better in the first place<p><hr></blockquote><p>You sound like you don't know what Firefox extensions even are let alone what they do. All of them are useful for one thing or another to suit your individual needs. If you don't want to use them that's really great, but they are anything BUT useless. It has nothing to do with compatibility. It has to do with functionality.<br><br>If you only have a few passwords and you're the only user of your machine then you probably don't need a passoword manager. Those of us who do need industrial strength password management can't get it from Safari and that's my point.<br>You don't need anything else than a basic browser, and any browser should AT LEAST work with your bank or it truly useless in this day age.<br><br>You like the bookmark manager in Safari. Good. I don't. I find it clunky, buggy and inelegant.<br><br>yes I do have needs beyond what many people need - though I won't go out on a limb and say it's X% without really knowing what that is.<br><br>Frankly, I STILL don't really see why people like it. I suspect it's simply an Apple or nothing attitude. It's ugly, clunky, buggy (just look at some of the posts in this thread) and feature light. If you like though that's GREAT!<br><br>And one last thing. You no nothing of my "workplace site designs." Please don't presume you do. Some don't work with Safari and it is clearly a Safari issue when they work just fine with every other browser I have tried.

FWIW, I wouldn't trust my browser with my passwords in any situation - I use CiphSafe myself, and have a pretty complex password to be able to open the files in which they're stored...<br><br>The program also closes itself within a few minutes of non-use. I used to keep everything in an Excel file, but thought better of it. My mom keeps all of hers in a text file named 'PASSWORDS' right on the desktop. I think I need to have a word with her....<br><br><br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>

That's actually a really good idea to use Ciphsafe. I think I may actually check that out. <br><br>Here at work though it's not so much security for passwords as several passwords, dozens of secure sites and multiple users that we have to be concerned with. <br><br>There is a master password feature in Mox/Firefox as well and that seems to work pretty well. <br><br>

How does your extension-enabled browser hold up against the 37-step security test set up by ScanIT and currently being promoted at Tera Patricks' Mac 360?<br><br>She wrote an interesting article followed by a link that will allow you to run the test on any mac/pc/browser combination to check it for 37 different vulnerabilites.<br><br>my mac/safari combination passed.<br><br>
Relax.<br><br>I'm just saying you have more specific needs than most people, but your posted as if you didn't realize that.<br><br>I also just posted my browser needs - needs that Safari handles just fine. And I find the interface far more Mac-like than FireFox.<br><br><br>
