Show Password

Author(s):



If you are not worried about someone looking from behind your back and stealing your passwords, why take additional pain for typing **** password fields, where you dont know whether you typed your long password correctly or not

Usage:
The addon is seen as an image in status bar.
Clicking on the image shows all the "password" boxes in the page and shows it in text.
Clicking on the image again converts "password" fields back to "password" and hides the text written in the field.
