However I think that there are 2 significant blunders or "rookie mistakes."
#1: enforcing a minimum count of a certain type of character. By using the up and down arrows, only a minimum of 2 can be selected. But a 0 (zero) can be manually entered, and should be, to maximize randomness and eliminate a bias. The outline should not be highlighted in red as if it's not a good thing to specify a minimum of 2 characters for a particular type of character.
#2: there is no explanation as to how the random characters are generated, how robust is the cryptographic process. True randomness is very difficult to generate. These passwords are probably good enough for log-in passwords, but what about for use with true encryption? If I need robust passwords for encryption I'd go to grc.com, packetizer.com, or use Keepass.
- par Dekel Tal, il y a 4 ansNoté 4 sur 5This addon is one of the most useful I have installed. I love that it's quick and simple, and yet powerful.
* The new button now unnecessarily takes up space on my toolbar. Moving it to the menu requires an additional click, plus causes the UI to be clipped so a horizontal scroll is required (which is bad user experience)
* For some reason the right-click functionality doesn't open the "Generate Password" UI. The only way I'm able to make it pop is by directly clicking the toolbar button, which takes away the locality of this function.
* The right-click menu now requires an additional level instead of quick selection
It just seems like these changes fix something that was not broken, while not providing any new functionality.
