Unless you forget your password immediately after typing it, wouldn't it be easier to just open the Keychain and find the password there? Firefox has its own password store, but will reveal passwords there as well.

Well yes, the keychain would be easier if it's your computer. On the other hand, if you're on somebody else's computer and don't know their keychain password, this is much easier!

I would not like to save my password on someone else's machine. It would be stupid to do so.

I find searching through my length keychain to find a website to be a hassle. I have multiple other layers of security (screensaver, login, etc.) and am not worried about others seeing my password. Thanks for this hint, especially the Showpass extension.

I find the Search Keychains (Spotlight) feature in Keychains to be stunningly precise in its ability to use disparate keywords and I can find a given key in seconds.
Command-Space; type 'keych'; press enter; focus is already on Search Keychains; type partial root domain and/or part of account name; press enter; get results. Easy peasy.
Definitely not faster than ShowPass and the like, but I've gotten over the want to add reams of extensions and troubleshooting it brings along with it.
However, this hint is not reflective of my usual need for Keychain Access; that is generally when a website presents me with a new page or design where my Keychain/Safari fails to recognize the request and I have no clue what to enter at all.
I don't know how useful this hint is for an honest user, but it is certainly disconcerting to realize how simple a keychain can be overridden if you have access to the screen; this is something I will have to advise additional users who share accounts.

Good hint. It reveals how dangerous it is to share your computer with someone else, or if you use someone's computer, how easy to know their secret words.

For at least the past five years, I've used the javascript code below--I cannot remember where I found it--to perform the same function. The code is referenced by a bookmark in my browser's bookmark bar, and a click on the bookmark reveals the obfuscated password in plaintext. I have found the ability to perform this function essential in recovering passwords which were stored in Safari's Autofill database, but not in a keychain. javascript:(function(){var%20s,F,j,f,i;%20s%20=%20%22%22;%20F%20=%20document.forms;%20for(j=0;%20j%3CF.length;%20++j)%20{%20f%20=%20F[j];%20for%20(i=0;%20i%3Cf.length;%20++i)%20{%20if%20(f[i].type.toLowerCase()%20%20%22password%22)%20s%20+=%20f[i].value%20+%20%22n%22;%20}%20}%20if%20(s)%20alert(%22Passwords%20in%20forms%20on%20this%20page:nn%22%20+%20s);%20else%20alert(%22There%20are%20no%20passwords%20in%20forms%20on%20this%20page.%22);})();

This is a VERY serious security bug in Safari that badly needs to be fixed…
Good to know though.
