So, this is rather neat. I use KeePassX as a password manager, and I was somewhat worried about how I'd be able to keep using it if I ever got a Chromebook, or use a browser-centric spin of Linux. Pretty much everything with by passwords is in my manager.

Then I ran into Keeweb, which is a web app that lets you use a KeePass ".kdb" or ".kdbx" file from a browser and open it as if you were using the native app. It keeps everything local unless you tell it to sync to a cloud storage account—OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, or a WebDAV account—and that makes it extremely secure. No need to keep it on someone else's servers if you don't have to, right?

You can also run it locally if you want, or even your own instance on a webserver. It also has offline support, so you can still get your passwords and other info while you don't have internet access.

If you use a Chromebook and you like KeePass for your passwords, I highly recommend this project.
