My windows died on me the other day. I had linux on my system for a while that I never used so I've been using that as of late. My problem is, I had a bunch of passwords saved in google chrome on my old system. I was wondering if there was a way to access those passwords from my linux system. I know I can still see all my old files but I wouldn't have a clue where to look. I feel like this would be a big security flaw if you could do this so I suspect there isn't a way to do this. But I figured I'd ask anyways.

Take a look here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/chromepass.html

ChromePass is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Google Chrome Web browser. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Origin URL, Action URL, User Name Field, Password Field, User Name, Password, and Created Time.
You can select one or more items and then save them into text/html/xml file or copy them to the clipboard.

Never used this particular application, but I have used other nirsoft tools before. So I can't vouch for the application itself.
