    Pros: 

    I have a few Chrome extensions that I consider vital because they just work. This looks like it could become one of them.

    Cons: 

    I agree that a website checker would be a good alternative, although that would seem to require you to give up PID.

    Having something in the browser that can check your passwords without actively logging in to sites seems like a great idea.

    Pros: 

    Great idea to bring some peace of mind for security.

    Cons: 

    Does it really need to be an extension? I think a website would have been sufficient.

    Seems to work instantly. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing.
