    I did not want to blame you for this software, simply i did not understand the usefulness of this tool. However as you’ve explained, there are additional functions that may be useful. Congratulations for the blog that I read with pleasure.

    I feared somebody would write something like this! Teorically speaking, this software also shows other infos such as Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field, Signons filename and usernames and passwords of any Firefox profile. Pratically speaking, you are right. Let’s say that this is another way to display all this stuff in an easier way! By the way, it also saves and backups all the passwords to a small XML or HTML file.
