How To Recover Stored Passwords from Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox and Chrome

Browsers are really becoming more and more user friendly with loads of features to take our browsing experience to new heights. A browser without a password manager feels extremely dull.
The password storage feature allows us to login into any website without entering login details manually. This comes in very handy as entering login details, specially in cyber-cafe is not at all secure.
Now, lets see you visit a site after a long time and suddenly want to know the password you used to login. The password is there in the password manager, but it does not allow us to see the password. Or, say you forget the master password somehow.
In these terrible situations, we  can use password recovery tools, These password recovery tools come in very handy and are totally safe and legal.

Lets see WebBrowserPassView

WebBrowserPassView is a small, portable and freeware utility designed to recover passwords from:
  • Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 – 9.0)
  • Mozilla Firefox (All Versions)
  • Google Chrome
  • Opera

Once WebBrowserPassView has gathered all the passwords from the various browsers, it displays them in a single table with the URL the password was saved for, what browser it was saved in and of course the username and password. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any Website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.
After retrieving your lost passwords, you can save them into text/html/csv/xml file, by using the 'Save Selected Items' option (Ctrl+S).
This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000, and up to Windows 7, including 64-bit systems.
Download:
WebBrowserPassView – 204kb
or visit webBrowserPass View's Official Site
Note: WebBrowserPassView is a tool that retrieves secret passwords stored in your system, and thus your Antivirus may falsely detect this tool is infected with Trojan/Virus But it is safe.
