For no good reason, I use three different browsers on my laptop. Each has it's own built-in password manager, and if I have to update a password in one, I have to do it in the others.

I've read about some commercial password managers like Dashlane, KeePass, and Lastpass, but when I read their descriptions, there's something that's not clear to me.

I'd like a password manager to fill in the user name and password on each website (like the built-in ones do), but still retain only the current password regardless if I switch browsers.

Do they actually work this way?

(Bonus question: the built-in manager in Chrome manages the passwords for my Android phone too. Is that possible with the other managers?)

Yes, they work that way (at least Keepass does). Also, At minimum Keepass is not commercial - its free and open source.

Note that in addition to Keepass you will need (mainly free) plugins to get communication working between your browser and Keepass, so there is a bit of fiddling around involved initially. (Also, for my plugin solution, Keepass/Kee provide its own system which works in addition to the internal password system in my browser)
