1Password (http://agilewebsolutions.com/products/1Password) for OSX and my iPhone but no Linux version :/

Does a couple of things: integrates with Safari and Firefox, stores passwords in an encrypted file, allows me to request it to generate a random password (so each login can have a unique password), and helps avoid phishing scams by when I ask it to fill in the password only showing me sites matching the associated domain (ie www.0bank.com != www.obank.com).  It also has a "wallet" feature - I assume for storing payment info for quick retrieval, and has an area set up to store product keys.

Again, tho, not a Linux solution.  Looks like there are Windows, OSX, iOS, and Android versions -- so maybe a Linux version would be in the future?
