I was wondering since there a lot of password managers around, like KeePass, LastPass etc (http://www.informati...9?page_number=1) which one is the best (and easiest to use)?
And most of all... do they work?

I use SplashID Safe - got a lifetime license and syncs with my phone and all PCs.

Im using Last Pass, not tried any others so can't really offer an informed opinion but its pretty simple to use and works for what I need.
Stores passwords and will generate complex passwords when signing up or changing passwords for existing sites.

I use LastPass myself, and it works well across just about every platform and device there is. Already used the iPhone app a few times and it works really well.
Have also used KeePass, which is good too if you want control over how/where your database is stored, but you do sacrifice some usability and convenience. Don't know about the iPhone apps, but the Windows Phone one worked ok-ish (feels clunky after using LastPass on iOS).

I have been using KeePass for years. Haven't really tested any others.
Keepass is multi-platform, as already mentioned. Works in my Windows and Android. I synchronise the DB file on all my devices.
KeePass also has a lot of add-ins you can use, if you find any you fancy.

KeePass hands down.
My passwords are now very complex and yet I don't need to know or type a single one of them. Auto-type saves me hours every month.
I came from LastPass but moved to KeePass as the target for my passwords isn't always a website. Windows UAC is heavily used where I work. I get prompted for my password at least 10 times an hour. Each time a Ctrl+Alt+A is all it takes and KeePass types it for me.

Another one for Keepass, been using it for years, on Windows, iOS, Android and Linux, all sync'd via dropbox.
Simple to use, with plenty of plugin, although I've never used them.
