BrowsePass as a Chrome app

I am pleased to announce the availability of BrowsePass Chrome app.

This is an easier way to set BrowsePass up on the Google Chrome browser (as well as its open source cousin Chromium). The Chrome app alleviates the most cumbersome steps in setting up BrowsePass: finding a web host for the source code. Everything else remains the same, including the convenience of opening your password database with a browser.

Though there is not yet extension/add-on/app for other browsers (such as Firefox, Safari, Opera), they can still run BrowsePass normally.

As usual, the source code (including the Chrome app) is at BitBucket.

Chainload from GRUB to Chameleon boot loader

A quick note to myself. Assuming OS X is installed in the 2nd partition of the 1st hard disk, modify your /etc/grub.d/40_custom file to have:

menuentry "OS X" {
    insmod hfsplus
    set root="(hd0,gpt2)"
    chainload /usr/standalone/i386/boot0

Then remember to run update-grub2.

The file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0 can be found in your hackintosh. It is the boot code from Chameleon. If you do not find this file, grab it from Chameleon package.
