Why Passwords don’t make sense

Passwords infuriate me.
They are the most frustrating ritual on the web.
Each new internet activity forces me to come up with one more thing to keep track of.
Every. Single. Time.
And every single service keeps me logged in forever. So after they sign me out I have to reset my password anyway.
And therein lies another problem. I can reset my password with my email account. If it is breached all my accounts are.
The majority of websites could just use email only authentication. No password handling to implement and most importantly one less password to remember.
