I use both Keepass and allow Google to store passwords, at both work and at home. A few reasons why:

* My corporate IT Security department is about as security crazy as you are (which is not necessarily bad). They recommend we use Keepass.
* I use a different password for every website.
* Keepass is my local store for passwords I really care about. Google is for convenience for throw-away websites.
* Many websites have no personal info on me (just an email address).
* I have a throw-away email address I use for sites that are suspect or I don't expect to use again.
* Many websites are throw-away sites. I need to log in once for some specific reason and might never go back there.
* Except for a few financial-based websites, I don't care if it gets hacked. It won't impact my life or access to other websites.
* Why? Most info that people think is private is actually very public and has been long before the digital age.

Just my 2 cents.
