Arthur, perhaps you were thinking of mozilla browsers password (master 
security password) that is used to store form/passwords.

This has a graph 0-100%, and each additional character you type it 
updates the graph to indicate strength. I am not sure but from memory if 
you say typed ten 0's it would show poor (5%) whereas if you typed a 
good ten char password, it would show say 70%.
