I need a software Bitcoin wallet (not web account based) that allows easy generation of many new payment addresses at once that are ideally stored in plain text, (bulk exported as plain text). The security is not a concern. I like Bitcoin-Qt but it is outdated and it takes forever to download the entire chain, which make it not portable in a way.
Is it necessary to download the chain? If one can use a paper wallet than one must be able to use software one without having the blockchain, or having just a small number of blocks, right?
