There you can export all records either to XML file (suitable for further analysis and/or reporting), or save just the passwords, so generating something like a dictionary/wordlist, e.g. to perform dictionary attacks with other software. The text file with password is sorted alphabetically (with the duplicates removed). XML file contains all the records from the keychains, including not just the passwords, but also the encryption keys, tokens etc, until you set the "Ignore non-password data in XML output" option.
