Password does what it says, but the lack of a standard format makes it not easy to use and the dependency on GPG keys makes your password very un-portable. You can take them anywhere, but creating new GPG keys for each device takes time and requires two devices (one to create the new key, and then another one to re-encrypt all stored passwords).

Especially on mobile this becomes a pain quickly.

Open source, proven technology, multi-platform, but the various interfaces all need work (I haven't tried the Android one...).

A great alternative for those who are looking for a native password manager. Die electron! It has clients for google chrome, firefox, android, linux (qt) and cli.

Pass stores your passwords locally and is open source. It's command-line based and you have to know a little bit about GPG. But there is an interface called QtPass which works well, and you can even get browser integration. Otherwise, try KeepassXC with either PassIFox or ChromeIPass for the browser integration.
