Where does osx store passwords for websites? I have a number of sites that I go to on the net but I have lost all the passwords. I can access the sites on my desktop but I would like to put them on my ibook as well. I use IE, and netscape. I am just looking for an easy way to transfer the information.

Mac stores them in keychain, but where keychain is and if you can retrieve them from there no clue.

If your using Safari, I think they are all stored in the Cache.. so just copy that cache folder to your iBook.
