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

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.

If it's a Chrome Extension then it comes w/ you... otherwise, it's unlikely you'll visit a website repeatedly to check your passwords.

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

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.
