I'm uncomfortable with the single password to access all other
credentials. Quick pitch for the Mooltipass (1) and it upcoming
miniature variant (2). There's a Chrome and Firefox extension. For
other stuff it's a keyboard emulator, so it works in IE/Edge, Android
and even on my smart TV. I also wrote Mooltipy (3), a python library
and command line utility.

It's a gadget (and I love gadgets), but it's another thing you've got
to carry around or keep on your desk (which I hate). It can be
securely shared between individuals (e.g. a family) but sharing
credentials amongst a distributed team wouldn't work.

Open source hardware, firmware, and extensions.
