This is how a password generator should work. All the other generators I checked out create random passwords that you then have to memorize or store somewhere, either written down or on your computer. If someone steals your computer from your home and finds your written list of passwords they have access to everything. If someone steals your laptop and can get into your Keychain account, where you would presumably keep your passwords, they would have access to everything. With Mnemosyne you create a single pass phrase that you memorize. You could then keep all the user names in Keychain along with any settings you used to generate the password. Anyone gaining access to Keychain wouldn't be able to do anything because they don't have the pass phrase.

The only quibble I have is that after copying the password to paste into wherever the password stays on the clipboard. It would be nice if Mnemosyne would erase the clipboard after a certain amount of time.
