Ubuntu – How to make Chrome/Chromium remember passwords in the gnome seahorse keyring


Is it possible to make chrome or chromium (as that comes default in the repos) to use the Gnome seahorse as password vault?

I have not found a way to do this for Firefox either, but maybe a solution for Firefox will lead to a solution for Chrome.

FYI: Epiphany is properly integrated into Gnome by default, and does use the default password vault. It would be great to at least have all passwords in a single, actually secure, place, instead of laying around in my home-dir.

Even better would be if somehow they could re-use eachothers passwords, but that depends on the implementation of this integration, i guess.

According to http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/07/chrome-dev-channel-adds-gnome-keyring-support-for-saving-passwords/ , that is available, you will need to update the chrome launcher to use –password-store=gnome.

There was a Firefox addon providing gnome keyring integration, I can no longer find it.
