View stored passwords in Netscape 8

How do you view the stored passwords in the passcard manager
(Tools>Options>AotoFill>Passcards)? Here I see the username of the site
but the password is ************. Is there some software to reveal the
password in the field? I have heard of the software to do thatin IE.

I am sorry if this is a dumb question but I have searched everywhere
for it.

I am not sure about such tools for IE, but it is a bug-riddled Web browser,
so I suggest you upgrade to Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, Safari or Mozilla
Firefox. Not only are they more secure, but they also render pages

In Firefox and its relatives/derivatives you can view your saved password by
doing the following:

* Go to Edit

* Preferences

* Privacy -> Saved Passwords

* View Saved Passwords

* Show password

Lo and behold! All your passwords in plain-text, lined up in one column
*gasp*. Make sure you lock your browser with a master password for that

Hope it helps,

Didn't the OP ask about Netscape?

In Opera checking passwords is not too easy, as AFAIK Opera doesn't  
disclose them. I have somewhere some Java script that cheks what Opera  
puts into the password field, but that's like scratching left ear with  
right hand.
