And vice versa.

I generally don't like the WOT community (anyone here excluded) so I prefer Norton.

There is no right or wrong; we all should do what makes us happy.

Nowadays, I actually only have it installed for my parents, mainly to enhance the anti-phishing offered by Firefox.

Leaving aside the question about what communities we do or don't like the problem with these toolbars is precisely that they give different results. Whether or not a site is safe is not a matter of opinion. Sites have to be assessed in real time because legitimate sites are sometimes targeted by malware purveyors and can host drive by downloads. AFAICT site ratings based on "reputation" (user feedback) will always be unreliable because they quickly become outdated.
