I've been on this forum for 2 days now and most opinions about wallets I see:
- blockchain.info and bitcoin-qt are good, because you have your private keys and manage addresses yourself
- coinbase and others are bad, because you don't really own your bitcoins

I haven't tried blockchain wallet yet, and last time I used bitcoin-qt was 2 years ago, but I don't think it's much different now.
Question is: How do you manage hundreds of addresses and where do you store securely your keys without relying on 3rd party wallets, like coinbase?

On blockchain.info you can have up to 400 addresses at once as I know. You can archive or delete the unused ones and generate new ones. So I recommend this.

If you need more active addresses use a software wallet like multibit or bitcoin-qt.

Or you can pre-generate as many addresses as you want for example on bitaddress.org (Bulk wallet tab), it's all depending on why you need hundreds of addresses.

I make USB drive backups + online file storing servers. Make sure you use strong password though

For security, it's best not to store the bulk of your Bitcoins online. Ideally, they shouldn't be stored in a local client on an Internet-connected PC either. A good approach is to use a local client such as MultiBit (https://multibit.org/) or Electrum (http://electrum.org) for your "spending money," and an offline wallet for any Bitcoins you aren't actively using.

I have a few articles that walk through this in more detail. If you're interested, the best place to start is here: http://www.bit-buddy.com/bitcoin-wallet.html.

Blockchain.info has fairly convenient multiple wallets.

If you are running some online shop, you have to use some automatic software to handle so many addresses

Gives me chill when reading this. Yes you could have a strong and secure password but it's not that the chunk of encrypted wallets can't be downloaded.

Having a USB or offline wallet is a bad idea for me. Changing hardware and losing stuff all the time.
However you convinced me to try blockchain.info wallet, probably will need to write some scripts for address management in addition
