Hello, I have a question; I have couple of websites; which i run. so i am installing all the available browsers so to see how my website looks in them. Mostly all of my website are looking perfectly well on this browser. but one of my website is not working as it should be. the Password Generator tool is giving me some issues. can some one check and let me know and help me fix it. because on others it is working perfectly fine

There doesn't seem to be a problem with the website or generating passwords client side or server side.

If you want people to use this though, you should most definitely get yourself an SSL certificate and set the site up with strong encryption. Sending XHR requests in the clear to generate someone's password is... well, defeating the whole point of generating a strong random password ;) -- so is generating in javascript when the scripting itself can be changed with MitM or content-stealing scripts can be injected into the page that way.

Why do you default to generating the passwords on the server anyway? Does if have a special setup to have a large entropy pool or very secure RNG?
