For Mac and PC versions of Safari, Firefox, or Chrome, simply add this link to your bookmarks: Site Password.
For iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you can follow these instructions.
First, you need to decide on a master passphrase. You will use this passphrase to generate all your site passwords, so make it a good one. A sentence that is easy to remember and known only to you is a good choice.
When you need to create a site-specific password, go to that site, click the "Site Password" bookmarklet, enter your passphrase at the prompt, and click OK.
Paste the displayed password into the page's password field.
When you need to log back in later, type in the exact same passphrase while viewing that site, and you will get the same generated password.
By default, the generated site password will be 14 characters of base 58 encoded text. This carries about 82 bits of entropy and complies with the password rules of most sites.
If you need a shorter password or special characters to satisfy restrictive site rules, just make the change to the generated password before you paste it into the password field. Of course, you can always modify the bookmarklet source code to better suit your needs.
You can also use the included Python version of the Skeleton Key logic to test the correctness of the compiled bookmarklet.
