Create a password using the name of the site, e.g. amazon.  Once that  
is typed in, press the home key to position the insertion point at  
the beginning of the word.  Now type your favorite static password,  
say p4ssw0rd, one letter at a time, with a right-arrow after each  
letter typed.  The result will be something like:


Unique for each site, easy to remember for each site, and defeats  
keystroke loggers or shoulder surfers.
