Grrr! Apple and their iron fisted control of everything. If the results weren't so amazing I swear I would hate them.
Excellent product btw! I buy it for all my friends, without even asking them, and bask in their appreciation for years to come.
While I appreciate the apparent design effort that seems to have gone into the beta extension, I very much miss the speed of the old dropdowns used in the past. The new design makes 1password seem much more clunky and slow to me.
I guess I would suggest moving to something that doesn't cover the browser window as much. I think my biggest issue is that the window is dead center and takes a while to load. I have multiple logins for many sites, so I often see the window even when using the keyboard commands.
The other issue is that things like generating a password or grabbing a credit card number are much harder and take longer than before. Before I just had to go into the menu and select the card or select generate, now the process is longer and I need to wait for images, html and JS to load (even if local)
In this case its not a matter of control, but security. Apple has locked down all system apps in Lion to use a Sandbox. Sandboxes mean that certain things are no longer possible because they were attack targets. In most cases Apple has provided new ways to alleviate the closing of the old ways. Firefox, Chrome, all these browsers are going the same way.
Frankly I really dislike the new plugin because it doesn't auto-unlock and it keeps asking to save passwords for sites that are already in 1Password. I've considered starting my 1Password database afresh though.
