Pwdmkr is a simple and safe password generator. If you are conscious about the huge danger of using the same username and password throughout different services on the web, never knowing how or where your passwords are stored, pwdmkr is for you.
In most cases passwords are actually stored in cleartext, meaning if one of those services database gets compromised, or if you happen to give your password to a sketchy website, you are, pretty much... hosed. The hacker, or admin with bad intentions will simply try your username and password in a series of other services, and once someone gains access to your email, it's bye bye to your online identity. (and all the other stuff you stored throughout the web).
pwdmkr is not the ultimate solution to passwords, however, it adds an extra layer of security to keep your online stuff safe. Generated passwords are secure, using a good combination of characters that makes brute force attacks many times harder. It also generates a unique password for each website you require one, meaning if that website gets hacked and your password compromised, you don't risk all your other accounts dominoing down.
This is not a unique or novel idea, many have already built similar stuff. I just took this a step further and focused on making it Simple, and usable, while making sure that, none of the info you use to create a password is cached or stored in memory in absolutely no way.
Hope you find it useful!
