KeePass is a freeware open-source utility to store and manage your passwords. It boasts of high security and a number of features, including a random password generator. You can even attach files to passwords.

Keepass creates 'database' of passwords which are accessible by master passwords. That is you need to set a password to create and access a database. Once you are done, start creating new entries in the database, containing passwords and usernames.

Keepass can be extended — there is a number of plugins available for Keepass. Among these, my favourite is KeeForm which "is designed to open and scan a web site for input fields and fill them accordingly with a user name and password."

It is lightweight and comes in two variants — a full installer and a portable version. The portable version is needs no installation and can be carried in a USB drive. This is useful if you use multiple computers.
