How does the Avant Browser Password compare to RoboForm?

Thanks

Both are pretty good. Roboform is more compatible.
The passwords you saved with roboform can be used in other browsers while the ones saved with Avant can be used in Avant only.

If there are two unrelated text boxes on the same page, Avant Autofills will insert your username, password, etc. correctly, but even though it just filled these fields, it doesn't submit them because it doesn't know which field(s) to submit. It puts up a dialog asking you to submit manually.

Other than that, I prefer the Avant Autofills to RoboForm, because RoboForm always uses the current tab instead of opening a new one when using the Firefox engine. Avant's Autofills can create a new tab, but RoboForm can't.
