One alternative to check the correctness of the password and avoid mistyping before hitting the enter button is to use a special bookmark which shows the characters besides the asterisk but if there are people around you watching the screen it is not a good idea to hit the bookmark to check the characters of the password.

Here comes an extension for the Chrome which works with the Visual Hashing.
