XOXCO - Is it time for password-less login?

My personal solution to the too-many-password problem is to use completely random, automatically generated password when I create an account. Most websites will allow me to stay logged in forever, and on the odd occasion that I need to log in again, a password reset tool will send a link to your email account that will allow me to login again. This way, I don’t really have a password, but I can always gain access to any account, as long as I still have access to my secure email account.

That’s an intriguing solution to a problem that everyone online has. I think I’m going to start doing this for all of the passwords I’ve been using a throwaway password on:P
