    My review will be unpopular but it's based on real, long term and intensive usage of this software. I've been using LastPass extension for Firefox for years, with great satisfaction, and recently I wanted to try KeePass, convinced by the large user base and so many good reviews. So I installed Keepass on my dropbox and also installed Keefox estension to my Firefox portable. After trying it for about 4 months I am now able to say my opinion. KeePass fails to suggest the login credentials 8 times on 10. The most times I have to manually search for the current website in the database and pick up username and password manually. And each one separately, because even selecting the same website from the db (same URL of current website) Keepass does not fill in anything. Inserting / creating a new website also fails many times; Keepass does not recognize the new registration / login and I have to insert manually. There are other minor issues I faced, too. I switched back to LastPass, that is working like a charm on all website and all situations. Cant' really guess the reason of so many positive opinions abut KP.

    This project's Mac version needs a clue-by-four from Jakob Nielsen. It's like running Xenu under Wine. The first major red flag I saw was quick enough: the options to connect include a greyed-out option to use Windows login authentication. Really? On a project that claims Mac compatibility? The look and feel needs a clue-by-four for Mac users who don't wish they were using Windows 95/XP. But the most serious problem I found presumably affects non-Mac users as well. If you try to create an entry (not a database), there's a nice option to add an entry, but woe to you if you go looking for adding an entry in the menuing system. There's at least one good option to create a complete new database, but there is no hint of a way to add an entry that I could find in the menus. You guys seem to have the back end programming down pat. Mind giving the front end some attention? This review posted as a review after multiple failed efforts to enter it into the bug tracker, where it belongs, didn't work.

    The best open source software for storing your passwords safe! Very useful and simple, thank you!

    Sure it can be useful, but there are a lot of extras that normal people will never use. Too many nobs to turn (and complex nobs as well for normal, everyday use)

    Always loved this on my Windows PCs, but have to say that I'm really disappointed with the Linux version. Visually, it just doesn't work (unreadable fonts, and bad formatting). It almost looks like an alpha version, or something?

    Keepass 2.1.5 is TERRIBLE on Debian Squeeze. The decision to use Windows as the major platform makes it TOTALLY UNUSABLE for me. I will bee sticking with KeePassX and KeePass 1.x for the foreseeable future. Ugly windows, ugly icons, ugly fonts, ugly controls. Not only that, Mono has a lot of catching up to do. I keep getting SIGSEGV (segmentation faults) as I use it. No, KeePass 2.x is not ready for prime time on Linux in my opinion, and will not be until it's rewritten properly. The dependence on Windows libraries is astounding, and sickening. I hate this project.

    Sure it can be useful, but there are a lot of extras that normal people will never use. Too many nobs to turn (and complex nobs as well for normal, everyday use) There are more user-friendly applications out there that accomplish the same task in a more intuitive and flexible way.

    Requires Microsoft's mushrooming .Net bloatware to be downloaded and installed, and you only find out when the KeePass installer has completed.
