Hi,

I can hardly believe that there is not already an app like this that allows you to edit the saved usernames and passwords for the stock (and other) browsers.
The only thing you can do from the browser is delete all saved usernames/passwords.
With this app you can view and edit all saved credentials for each website.
Of course this requires root.

This is still very much in beta, I have only tested this on my Galaxy Nexus with CM9 (Android 4.0.3). The UI is also a work in progress, so it's still very ugly looking.
Before using this app consider making a backup of the browser data.

External Storage permission is for export of data as csv.

Please post suggestions / bugs / etc!

Regards

Abomb

any chance to add support for more browsers? it's really just a matter of changing the package name for most browsers as they use the same format. e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ft.browserplus https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.quickbrowser (and their pro/donate versions)

This is really neat but I'm surprised our passwords aren't encrypted and blocked.

The stock browser actually saves the saved passwords in plaintext. Of course, if you're not rooted you (and other apps) have no way of getting access to those files containing the passwords, so as a normal user you're save.
