Here's a question about password managers that you might be able to help answer. I have read that using the password manager that comes with your browser isn't secure enough. But why is that?

I imagine that if you get a product whose whole purpose is to serve as a password manager, it'll do a better job at it than if you get an additional feature of a browser. But is it just that they use better encryption algorithms, or is there something else that makes browser password managers unsafe?

EDIT: Great article, by the way. As usual, I really enjoyed reading it and found it highly informative.
