Must-have Firefox 4 add-ons for Chrome and Internet Explorer converts

So you've finally realized that while Chrome might be fast, it sacrifices creature comforts to be so. It's a little bit like living in a whitewashed room with nothing more than a beige-box PC and keyboard -- it works, but it's not a particularly fun experience. If you like car analogies, Chrome is like a race-tuned Ferrari with hard-plastic bucket seats and tubular titanium roll cage. Likewise,...

LastPass Sesame enables two-factor authentication for your password vault

Two-factor authentication is a good way to add a strong, additional layer of security to your online accounts. While it's certainly important to use with something like your Google account (which recently added support), a password manager like LastPass is an even better place to batten down the hatches this way. LastPass users who have a premium account should definitely check out Sesame, a...

The best social networking add-ons for all your browsers

If you're a social networking butterfly, or if you have the malevolent aspirations of one day becoming a 'social media expert,' you almost certainly spend a vast amount of time surfing the Web. You probably use a modern browser like Firefox or Chrome, and you almost certainly have a ton of tabs open at the same time. It can be hard work, keeping track of multiple websites. Hitting F5 is a...

LastPass XSS vulnerability found, website and browser add-ons affected (updated)

Mike Cardwell, the Stallmanite who recently discovered a fantastically covert way of working out which Web services you're currently logged in to, has found a nasty XSS vulnerability in the LastPass password manager. The cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability not only allows nefarious types to see which sites you've recently logged in to, but it also provides access your email address and...

10+ Chrome extensions and Web apps for new users

It might only be a couple of years old and its extension interface might not be quite as powerful as Firefox's, but in terms of developers, big-name publishers, and sheer numbers, Chrome already has a very healthy ecosystem of add-ons. When you factor in Chrome's exclusive selection of Web apps, it's even possible to say that Chrome has a wider variety of extensions -- or at least until Mozilla...

LastPass now available for Windows Phone 7

Though the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace is growing steadily, the platform is still lacking plenty of marquee apps. You can now cross one off the list, however -- popular password manager LastPass has arrived! Log in to the app, tap a site in your list, and the WP7 browser opens and LastPass logs you in automatically. Right now, LastPass for WP7 is read-only, meaning it can pull down all your...

Three password apps to protect yourself from trouble like the Gawker database hack

Sure, it's fun to post comments on websites and converse with your fellow readers, but there's always a little danger involved. Why? Because sometimes the sites where you post those comments rile up the wrong people and wind up with a big security breach -- like the one at Gawker. One of the biggest lessons to be learned from the Gawker fiasco is this: don't use the same password everywhere. ...

LastPass buys Xmarks, saves cross-platform multibrowser bookmark sync

Xmarks, the cross-platform multi-browser sync solution that was on the verge of shut down, has been saved from oblivion by a purchase by fellow browser add-on company, LastPass. For those who haven't heard of LastPass before, it's like the Xmarks of passwords, with secure password sync and storage across multiple platforms and browsers, which currently operates a freemium model, something...

LastPass extension now available for Opera 11

LastPass has been providing secure, accessible-anywhere storage for your endless collection of Web logins for quite some time. The LastPass bookmarklet works in any modern browser, but it's not quite as functional as the add-ons for Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Now, users of Opera 11 can enjoy the full LastPass experience, too! Head on over to the Opera extensions site and install LastPass...

LastPass extension now securely manages your passwords and forms on Safari 5

As soon as Safari 5 was released and support for 3rd-party extensions was announced, users began wondering just how long it would take for many of their favorite Google Chrome and Firefox add-ons to be ported. If you've been waiting for the awesome secure password and form fill tool LastPass, good news -- the Safari 5 extension is ready to rock. Once you've installed the LastPass extension and...

LastPass extension for Google Chrome now available, and it rocks

A number of Download Squad readers have been echoing the same sentiment in recent posts about Google's browser: as soon as LastPass is available, we're leaving Firefox for good. Well, gang, grab your parachutes, it's time to bail! The LastPass crew has released an alpha version of their Google Chrome extension, and it rocks. Check out the screens after the break!...

LastPass brings secure password management to Safari on Mac

LastPass, the secure password management and form filler that was first released for Firefox and Internet Explorer, has welcomed another browser into the fold. Mac users running Safari for their browser can now run a full LastPass plugin rather than relying on the Javascript-powered bookmarklet. Just head over to the LastPass homepage and click 'get LastPass.' As you can see in the screenshot,...

DLS Exclusive: sneak peek at LastPass for the iPhone

I've been using the LastPass bookmarklet for a while now to securely access my password vault from my iPod Touch. It gets the job done, and it's certainly much easier than re-entering all my passwords into Safari. Yesterday, I received an email from LastPass' Joe Siegrist with some exciting news: they've been quietly working on an iPhone app, and were ready to let me take it for a test drive. So...

Lee's three must-have Firefox addons

My browsing habits have changed quite a bit since I first switched to Firefox. I used to think I needed custommize it with a large compliment of addons. Now, not so much. Plenty of the chores I used to leave up to addons can be done with Firefox itself. Search bookmarks, userchrome hacks, and about:config offer plenty of tweaks without adding any bloat to the browser. However, there are still a...

LastPass now handles logins and form filling in any browser

Since I started using LastPass, it's become one of my top three Firefox addons. Yesterday, the development team released a new feature that allows you to securely access your passwords even if you're not using the Firefox or IE plugins. LastPass can now work from a bookmarklet - great news for users of Opera, Google Chrome, Kmeleon, or virtually any browser on any platform that supports...
