Roboform as a large number of advantages over the Norton offering. For me, the key deciding features are:
1. Sync - I use the Roboform Anywhere product, so my laptop, phone and workstations all share the same login information. A change to a password done on one computer automatically updates all the others.
2. Ability to choose which credit card to use to fill in purchase information. When presented with a credit card information screen, I can readily choose which credit card to use to enter the information.
3. Automatic strong password generation. I can press a button, have Roboform generate a strong password, fill it in, and save it.
4. Firefox compatibility. Had I relied on the Norton product, I would have had a big problem after updating to Firefox 4.0. Yes, I know the patch is out now. But during the time it wasn't....
Overall, the Roboform product is much more mature and useable than the Norton product. That said, I look forward to seeing improvements in the Norton product, and would love to kill off Roboform. I use Norton 360 for protection on my Windows machines - and that product has now gotten good enough for backups that I have killed of iDrive.
Regarding the crashes: they occur on my laptop running 32-bit Windows 7 professional. They do not occur on my workstations running 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate.
