1Password in Linux

I've been using 1Password for my password needs and love it.  The one thing that is frustrating is they don't have a client for Linux.  I was able to work around this by using their 1Password Anywhere feature.

To do this I opened Chrome and logged into  Remember to check the Remember me checkbox.

Once logged in navigate to your 1Password.agilekeychain folder and open your 1Password.html file.  Once it's opened click the wrench in Chrome and under Tools click Create Application Shortcuts...

You can now either add that shortcut to your launcher or leave it on your desktop.

As an FYI this requires having your 1Password database sync with Dropbox and  having Chrome installed.

You can also install WINE and install 1Password for Windows as you normally would and it functions fine.  I prefer the  web based client though.
