I am using LastPass on my Mac, PC and iPhone, and find that it works great.

Has anyone compared this to 1Password?

Amazing. It'll probably be the best app I'll never use.

you didn't see this coming...?
people have pc's, and they use passwords, so why not..

Oh nice! Wonder if it intergrates with the browser like the mac version or if it's purely for storing...this would complete my set.

I've tried LastPass for Mac, and found it to be less stable than 1Password. It crashed Safari a couple of times before I gave up and swapped back to 1Password.

The other thing that bugs me about LastPass is that the only way to use it is to trust your (encrypted) stuff on someone else's servers. There is no way of saying 'OK, I want to use LastPass, but please may I store my credentials on my own server'.
Sure, the guys at LP have made repeated assurances that all your data is safe, and they can't decrypt it even if they wanted too. And some other guys have even put packet sniffers on their own network to review the data that is getting sent to LP. But I'm still deeply skeptical. I've heard of many "secure" systems falling to innovative attacks. And it wouldn't surprise me if hackers are eyeing off the LP servers as a nice juicy target.

1Password is not without its own annoyances either. I don't understand why the agile keychain database contains human readable text - specifically the name of the site that the credentials are is for. Surely it should all be encrypted.

Well awesome! I've always thought the lack of cross platform support was a little dumb.

Looks like I'll be ditching LastPass sometime in the future.

Awesome! I wonder if the database will be cross-compatible tho... that way you could run from your existing keychain in dropbox to stay in sync with the Mac version. Hell yes!

Now if I could only get work to let me install it :(
