Webbrowserpassview – the scariest freeware program in the world

Webbrowserpassview is a freeware program that automatically scans and unveils all the web site passwords stored in your Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Opera web browsers.

Curious how long your password would stack up against a hacker using a brute force attack? There’s a site for that. Obviously this site…
