To go along with a major 1Password 4.5 update that has brought a brand new iOS 7-friendly look and feel plus a bunch of new features to the popular password-management app for the iPhone and iPad, developer AgileBits this morning unleashed an improved version of 1Password unto the Mac App Store.

Now available half price through Friday (and free to existing users), the new 1Password 4.3 for Mac includes support for the native full screen mode on OS X 10.8.4 or later, contains various search improvements, sports better URL matching, lets you edit items right in 1Password mini and more.

I’ve included detailed description, screenshots of the new interface and the official list of changes right after the break…

The app icon has undergone a few minor artistic changes that you’ll barely notice.

1Password mini can now “search everything” and there are a bunch of handy new keyboard shortcuts for commonly used actions. Another friction has been removed as 1Password mini now shows your Secure Notes, too.

The app features native support for the OS X full screen mode, it will sync your data file on a USB drive and – perhaps most importantly – now finally allows you to edit your items right in 1Password mini, saving you precious time.

Though not as major an update as the newly launched and completely revamped iPhone and iPad edition, 1Password 4.3 for Mac nevertheless contains a massive number of refinements, improvements and changes.

Here’s everything that’s new in 1Password 4.3 for Mac:
