LastPass does do what you ask - store/serve passwords based on full URLs.  It works for me for multiple Mailman lists under 1 domain I have.  LP does indeed store your passwords on their servers, but they do not hold your Master Password, and all decryption is done client-side with in-browser JS.  So if you loose your MP, that’s the end of your PW store.  It’s about as secure as you can get without rolling your own.  It’s all free if you don’t use the mobile plugin feature, otherwise it’s $12/year - quite a deal I would say.


Who can you trust?
