Has anyone got this to work? Someone did show how it was done.. dragging password-page bookmarks from IE to the Keychain control panel.. BUT.. it doesn't work for all the sites I've ever went to. Wells Fargo banking just opens up its screen with blank login boxes like normal.. Slashdot.Org shows the same page as a non-user. It's as if the Keychain never really puts info into the page like it says it's supposed to.

No current versions of web browsers support Keychain. It allows you to add the passwords to the Keychain but they won't actually be able to use it. For that matter any program that has a dialogue box with a password can put it in the Keychain but most don't actually support Keychain yet. Hopefully in future versions of these programs they will support the Keychain application.
