Just as the title states: Recommend me a good online wallet, with these conditions:

- Static recieve address
- Wallet for BitCoin
- Wallet for NameCoin
Would be nice if it could store LiteCoins aswell, but its not an absolute need.

I've been using MtGox, but I typically don't store for more than a few days.

I would recommend you print a paper wallet from BitAddress.org.  This is what I do, and I handle thousands of Bitcoins.  Virtually all of my bitcoins are on paper.

I have a utility that, if you give me the Bitcoin address, I can give you the Namecoin address that shares the same private key, without needing to know the private key.  It's a simple mathematical conversion.  So you could use the same paper wallet for both.  The utility is open source, you can download it and run it too.  It will generate addresses for all the various crap coins  Wink if you just input the number that identifies them (e.g. 0 for bitcoin, 52 for namecoin, someone surely knows the number for all the others).  Hopefully the alt coin of your choice supports private key imports.

(Excuse the bias on the alt coins, of course)

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I'm very interested in this topic, since I'm just finding out about bitcoins but right now all the computers I have access to are shared and I only need to move around small amounts.

More than anything I'd like to hear opinions on how secure e-wallets are in practice, would my funds really be compromised even in the short term using any of these services? Are they constantly under attack?

I'm using instawallet right now, I keep the address written down and check only using my portable Chrome on incognito mode from my thumbdrive and then only from computers which I know aren't infected with any viruses.

In my opinion, it is OK to use a website for small amounts. You just need to protect yourself from vírus/malware that could steal your password (if you used the official client you'd have to do that anyway). The top exchanges are probably safe: Mtgox, TradeHill, CampBX, Intersango, etc. They have been around for several months and they haven't been compromised (well, except for MtGox in June...). Btc-e is more recent and doesn't inspire me a lot of trust, but maybe they are OK too.

No they don't. However coins only appear in your Gox wallet when they have 6 confirmations.

I personally like the blockchain.info or the strongcoin.com ones because they cannot see your private keys and run away with the money like mybitcoin etc. !

As much as the 1% transaction fee (max. 1 btc fee) bites, I mainly use StrongCoin for my online wallet, since I keep control of the private keys. I haven't tried blockchain.info yet.

You could probably recommend to the owner of StrongCoin that he implement namecoin usage. Surely the coding is similar enough to be worth the trouble.

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

I'd like to support namecoin, I'll do some research and see how it works.

Do you need an HP server configured  & dropped to you within 2 days anywhere in Europe - please talk to me.

You are honestly better off having a wallet locally and running frequent backups.  I backup mine every 12 hours (scheduled for when I get payments in from pools) to my Dropbox so I always have a record going back, so heaven forbid the most recent backup gets corrupt I have the last one available.  Been working fine and no worries about exchanges dropping, companies getting hacked, etc.

I'd look through bitcoin.it as they have a fairly comprehensive list, here are a few:

blockchain.info
bitcoinqt (download)
coinbase.com

Also, many sites such as localbitcoins.com and mtgox have a wallet feature where you can store bitcoins.
