I use Truecrypt (hard drive), GnuPG (mail) and KeepassX every day - that's a tough call

so which one is this?

how does keepassx compare to tor-browser?
i use both, and imho their purpose doesn't even overlap.

The nominees and category descriptions should make this very clear.

This is explained very well in the MCA intro post, and you've been a member long enough to know the answer.

I like the keepass compatible options. I found an Open Source program that will display keepassx compatible databases using a ncurses/pdcurses front end for those who prefer a console mode option or don't have X installed.

Yes, but the penultimate version 7.1a should still be fine and in fact has been audited (http://istruecryptauditedyet.com/) so people will still be using it.

Personally I've moved my encrypted containers on to VeraCrypt, which essentially took TrueCrypt 7.1a and continued developing it.
