There have been a few Bitcoin wallets available for Chrome and other browsers but how about one that searches for Bitcoin addresses on the pages you visit and allows for one-click payment from your BTC stash? KryptoKit, launched today at the Inside Bitcoin conference in Las Vegas, lets you do just that.

First, KryptoKit allows you to create a Bitcoin wallet that you can use to store your BTC using your browser. It is ostensibly secure – you can set a password that you must enter before the wallet can send out any Bitcoins. It also lets you backup your wallet to a file.

This is actually really cool to just play with, I haven't put any bitcoins into it cause I am still looking at the source just to be cautious. But it detects every address on a page, and I can see it making tipping real easily.

Also it has a GPG message features, I guess you cause use it to send messages to other people but I haven't tried it.

thanks gweedo .. this is the kind of innovation i like to keep a close eye out for .... the current crop of web payment apps (like coinbases clunky pop-up) really suck, lose coins and instill zero confidence in user when dealing with money.

I think there is massive opportunity at the coal face here for a simple yet highly effective web payment app to become the "face of bitcoin" killer app ... with all the gold that comes with that, i.e. it will become the default customer facing input dialogue for ALL btc web payments ...

Can someone point me to the source code? I'm currently testing it, looks good but, what's at the back-end of this kind of wallet? How it interacts with the blockchain?

There is no official github, or place for the source code, but if you download the file from the google web store, then just append .zip to it, and open it using a zip opener it should show you all the source code.

Wouldn't this be more dangerous for bitcoin users to use. Couldn't a malware target something like that and get the password and send your bitcoins to a criminal. That already happens and using this may be convenient but more of a security concern.(Though I'm just a paranoid bastard)

Not sure about its security, I wouldn't use it for anything but a few buck worth of cash right now, but looks cool and works great.

Like your real life wallet. Withdraw cash from pin machine (master wallet) to take with you.

Cheers!
