How to see a password stored in Chrome?

Is there a way to see a password in plain text that was saved by Chrome? I’ve gotten so used to just letting Chrome deal with it that I can’t remember the actual passwords to a number of sites, and I’m starting a new gig this week where IE is the only browser allowed (I know, right?).
1. Click the Chrome menu on the right side of the browser toolbar.
2. Select Settings.
3. Click on "show advanced settings."
4. Click on "manage saved passwords" in the "Passwords and forms" section, and you should see a list of all of your saved usernames and passwords.
5. In the list the passwords will be hidden (xxxxxxxxx). However, if you click on a hidden password, an option to “show” will appear to the right of it. Click on the “show” button, and you can see your password in plain text.
