I migrated to bitwarden a couple of months ago and it is absolutely brilliant. The premium version I use is very reasonably priced, so I’m really pleased I decided to migrate from LastPass.
But I think there are a couple of ways bitwarden could be more efficient.
I would suggest two things but, although they’re both usability features, they’re different, so I’ll present them in separate posts for clarity.
This one is about better use of screen space.
Currently, if I want to use the bitwarden extension to launch a protected web page, the extension shows me the login for the current tab (if relevant) and then identities (or nothing, as per user configuration), while 99.9% of the time, it’s my vault I need to access …
Let’s take a practical example for the sake of clarity. I’m on my amazon web account and want to launch my ebay web account.
When I activate the bitwarden extension, it shows the login info relevant to the current (amazon) page… and nothing else, which I think is a waste of screen space.
I then have to click on “My Vault”…
To access my favourites / folders
Where I can finally select/launch my ebay account.
When I activate the bitwarden extension, it shows the login info relevant to the current (amazon) page, AND my vault…
From where I can directly use the launch button to start my ebay page/account.
Note: It’s even worse if I am on an unprotected page without relevant login.
I currently get this when I activate the bitwarden extension:
Where “Add a login” is pretty much useless, as the “+” icon does the same job, and the bulk of the pop-up space is unused.
Again, I’d rather have all this space utilised like this:
So, I can directly access what I use most…
I hope it all makes sense…
This, given the extension is a tool that’s used quite a lot in the day, would, in my mind, make the experience much better. I also don’t think (although I’m not a programmer, so could be wrong) this would be very difficult to implement.
Thanks for your attention and possibly support to get this up the list of developments.
