Four password lockers that can help you keep your Web logins secure

In my case, I use password composer http://www.xs4all.nl/jlpoutre/BoT/Javascript/PasswordComposer. It uses a hash password and the site name to generate a secure password. For instance a master password of "gorilla" and a site of "www.google.com" will yield a password of "a58430cc".

This way I have one simple master password to remember. Each site gets a custom, secure password. Every site I visit gets it's own password. Anyone that compromises one password at one site, well that is all they get, one password for one site.
