Password Manager Capabilities
People with a decent sense for discretion know that it is not really a good idea to store passwords in a browser.
OK, I have PINs as a separate password manager for "sensitive" passwords (like banking access).
Still, I am using the built-in password manager of Vivaldi (and before that Opera) for all sorts of less sensitive passwords (like e.g. for shopping sites), because I don't like to spam my PINs-file with rubbish passwords.
This is working fine (although I do understand why some people get annoyed with the fully automatic form-filling of V.; I would prefer some semi-automatics, too, e.g. like it was with Wand in Opera).
However, when you have some 100 passwords in the V.-password manager and you want to change s.th., it really sucks. There is no editing, you can only delete an entry and create a new one. Apart from that, it is taking ages to find an entry in such a long list.
Is there anything in the pipe to make this pw-mgr a little more user-friendly and professional?
Hi, you can copy/paste vivaldi://chrome/settings/search#pass
to address field and get the Chromium setup.
nope, the suggestion with vivaldi://chrome/settings/search#pass does not work at all;
I get an error message that the file does not exist;
apart from that I know that I can open the password section of the settings somehow in a separate window, but that does not make things better, because: there is no decent way to edit (e.g. sort) the load of entries.
Some internal links have changed.
yep, I know that the link was wrong; I already got there, but as described, useful editing is s. th. different.
You can use old Vivaldi 1.11 to export/import as CSV file. See my article.
But if you want to have a password manager i suggest KeePass ruinning as external program and ability to send login data in Vivaldi browser.
nope, it does not make any sense to reinstall some old version just to have that import/export function working and therefore some other stuff probably not;
as described before, I DO have a password manager (not KeePass but similar) for sensitive passwords; that is no substitute for a browser-included pw-manager, where I have dozens of non-sensitive passwords stored (e.g. for online shops that I visit only once in three years).
