macOS Sonoma Brings Apple Password Manager to Third-Party Browsers

The macOS Sonoma update that is in testing allows Mac owners who opt to use Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or another browser to use Apple's Password Manager for filling passwords.

Chrome Feature 22
Developers and public beta testers running ‌macOS Sonoma‌ can use their iCloud Keychain passwords with non-Safari browsers at this time, autofilling passwords and one-time codes. Third-party browsers can also save new passwords.

Apple has made an iCloud Passwords Chrome extension available for ‌macOS Sonoma‌ users, and it can be downloaded and installed to access Apple passwords on the Chrome browser or any Chromium-based browser. Apple has also provided an extension for Microsoft Edge users.

Google and other browser developers are also working on implementing support for Passkeys, the password alternative that Apple introduced last year.

Is there some reason Firefox can't even get a mention in a story like this? It's the only browser built by a non-profit and it's actually really good.

Can Apple actually make a password manager app that's universal and supports more than just website passwords? Please Tim

nope sorry, passwords will still remain in my head. nice try tim apple
You realise that is the least secure method of password storage? If you memorise them all, they need to be easy to remember, and you will have to reuse them. I have 500+ passwords saved in Bitwarden, which are all unique and securely encrypted. If you have to remember all passwords at best, you'll be able to remember 10 if you are really good.
