LastPass For Google Chrome Arrives

1 Ott/09

There are two Firefox extensions that I do not want to live without: NoScript and LastPass. I’d think about switching to another web browser if that web browser would support these two extensions. This option has come a step closer with the announcement that LastPass has developed an extension for the Google Chrome web browser. LastPass is an excellent password manager and form filler that comes with an incredible feature set that includes one click logins to websites, a secure password generator, form profiles that make it easier to fill out web forms and possibilities to access and use the password manager on other computer systems as long as the master password is available.

The developer’s of the password manager LastPass have now created a first version of LastPass for Google Chrome dev builds. Chrome users who want to install and use the password manager need to do the following (taken from Lee’s explanation over at the Download Squad):

  • Install a Google Chrome dev build. Skip this step if you already do
  • Install the LastPass extension by opening https://lastpass.com/lpchrome.crx in the Google browser.
  • If Chrome refuses to allow you to install it (it tries to save in a loop) go to Wrench -> Options and disable choosing where to download files (this will be fixed in next dev build).
  • Finally, it is recommended that you disable the built-in password manager by clicking on the Options (under the customize and control ‘wrench’ button). Then choose the ‘Personal Stuff’ tab and select ‘Never save passwords’ and ‘Never save text from forms’

The Windows version of the LastPass extension seems to be very solid right now while Linux and Mac users report problems with the extension. This will be addressed in the next version of the extension according to the developers.
