I'm a satisfied user of LastPass on all my machines, tablets and phones,
with both Firefox and Chrome, but of course it's not free software. A
discussion on the main Fedora Users list a few months back threw up
several alternatives, of which KeePass (http://keepass.info/
) seems to
be the strongest, though there doesn't appear to be a Fedora package for
it. It's not a drop-in replacement for LastPass but there are ways to
export your encrypted keyring to a cloud service such as Dropbox or
Google Drive, albeit manually. It depends on how easy you want it all to
be versus how important you take the free vs closed issue with password

Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as

KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The
generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who
generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias
Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved
information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format
that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe for MS Windows.
