How Strong is Your Password?

We all know how important a good password is, but how do you test how good it REALLY is?
Sure, many websites now come with password indicators which says ‘Weak’ or ‘Strong, but what exactly does that mean?
Well now you can get an answer :)

Hackosis has setup a calculator which estimates how fast your password would be cracked if it was run on a typical PC processor under ideal conditions. Granted that the real world does not run in ideal conditions (with bandwidth limitations etc), but results are nevertheless - pretty scary.
