[WSG] Best password strength indicator?

2008-03-27 Thread Sigurd Magnusson
Am looking for an intuitive and elegant example of a password field  
with an strength indicator that updates as you type each character.


I've seen plenty around, and off the top of my head I quite like  
Google's* (although I'd say it should show small amount of red graph  
to begin with, portraying instantly that the line is a strength  
indicator).

* https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount

Can anyone let me know if there's one they feel is significantly  
better than that? I'm keen for one that is compact. Some are over the  
top and make the user have to think an unnecessarily extra amount.


For instance, this MSN one contains intuitive elements but is  
cluttered with too much instruction.

I Like the following:
http://www.passwordmeter.com/

Show the strength as you type, with a detailed explanation of that strength.
You can download the script:

Have fun!
