I've been using Roboform for Windows. Now that I have bought an iMac, I am wonder what password tool to use.
FYI this is a very common topic:
Yeah, about Steve Gibson...Lastpass gets my vote. According to security expert Steve Gibson, it's the best one out there...

1Password. Don't know if it's on sale anymore but it's totally worth it. Especially once they release 1Password 4 since it'll be able to sync with iCloud.
Just come across Dashlane. Looks interesting.
Anyone tried it?
Hi Jon, I am also a long time user of the Windows version of RoboForm and RoboForm Everywhere. Recently purchased the RoboForm Mac OS X version for my Macmini and now use their iOS app on my iPhones and iPads. While the iOS app is a little clunky (no iOS Safari integration), the Mac version works the same as Windows and RoboForm Everywhere does a great job of seamlessly keeping everything in sync between my multiple devices.I've been using Roboform for Windows.

One thing that concerns me is that RoboForm does not seem to be widely used or a popular choice amongst MacRumor members. Perhaps this is because of it's Windows origin or because 1Password and Lastpass are just simply better products? So far I have not found any detailed comparisons between the three products, but I keep looking. Most likely I'll end up demoing both to see for myself .
1Password uses a DropBox solution that does not appear to be as integrated or as easy to use as RoboForm when syncing between different OS's and devices. Not sure about LAstPass. Perhaps others can offer more insight.
Another vote for LastPass... Steve Whoever notwithstanding.
I've been using it for years, and it certainly meets my needs.
I found it pretty easy to use. I have 1Password for Mac and iOS (using on an iPhone and iPad). Regarding synchronization, I grew tired of waiting for 1Password 4, which promises iCloud support, to be released, and enabled Dropbox support. I did it in a really foolish way, too, but the program handled it beautifully: I enabled it on my iPhone, which only had one secure note in its 1Password database, and then I enabled Dropbox syncing on my Mac. 1Password on the Mac automatically created a folder and moved its database to my Dropbox directory. It added the secure note from the iPhone to my main database, and the iPhone version then added in everything else as well. As a bonus, I had iCloud syncing enabled on the iPhone as well, and the iPad - which has iCloud syncing enabled, but not Dropbox - updated as well.1Password uses a DropBox solution that does not appear to be as integrated or as easy to use as RoboForm when syncing between different OS's and devices.
