KeePass vs Password Safe: What are the differences?

Developers describe KeePass as "A free and open source password manager *". It is an open source password manager. Passwords can be stored in highly-encrypted databases, which can be unlocked with one master password or key file. On the other hand, *Password Safe** is detailed as "Allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list". It is a password database utility. Like many other such products, commercial and otherwise, it stores your passwords in an encrypted file, allowing you to remember only one password (the "safe combination").

KeePass and Password Safe can be categorized as "Password Management" tools.
