What do those who have tried Stainless think of it?
First, a disclaimer: At this point, Stainless is really just a technology demo and is likely to stay that way
Although Stainless started out as a technology demo to showcase our own multi-processing architecture in response to Google Chrome, we've been inspired by our growing fanbase to forge ahead and craft Stainless into a full-fledged browser. In fact, Stainless now has features you won't find in Chrome or in any other browser.
I'm sorry for bringing this 5-month old thread back to life, but Stainless has changed their first paragraph into this:
So... any chance 1Password could support it?
I would also love to see support for Stainless! This multi-process/parallel sessions thing is pretty rockin'. Apologies for my ignorance, but does the fact that a browser is built on WebKit make it easier to implement something like 1Password? Or is the engine not that huge of a factor compared to other things?

Please note that Stainless is still in development and doesn't yet have all the features you'd find in a production-ready browser. As we work towards a 1.0 release, you can check out what's new in every update by clicking the version link under the Download button.
Based on our past experience I think it is fairly safe to say that we probably won't look into this until there is at least a 1.0 release.
Maybe the developer is using Chrome. Just kidding
Each tab in Stainless runs independently in a separate process, which means:
Slow page loads (especially due to plugins such as Flash) can't affect the responsiveness of the browser or other tabs.
Crashed pages can't bring down the browser or other tabs.
Decreased memory usage.
Once a tab is closed, the memory for that session is completely freed to the system.
