    • Completely new entry list column engine; the columns are dynamic now, custom entry strings can be shown in the list, to configure go 'View' -> 'Configure Columns...'; the column engine is also extensible now, i.e. plugins can provide new columns.

    I used to love KeePass.. still a very solid program. Of late, I've found myself using LastPass more often now though..

    Although KeePass over dropbox is a very good combination as well..

    I was just going to post here about LastPass fitz.

    I used KeePass for years, and loved it. But for the last 9 months at least I have moved over to LastPass, it's the same thing but built into your browser. Awesome.
