    how does safari rank up to this, do you or anyone else know? At my house, i used firefox, but i've herd it has a lot of memory leaks so i stopped using it, cuz my comp doesn't have enogh memory anyhow..

    but on my powerbook, i been just using safari, and it does crash and quit like maybce once a month.. but nothing terrible, and it seems to be fine, so i just continued to use safari, but maybe i'll give this a try..

    Have you compared performance any between the standard 1.5 and optimized 1.5? I've been running the 1.5 betas and RCs for a couple of months and I think the performance is great (much much better than either the optimized or non-optimized 1.0 chain).

    I ran RC 3 for about a week. Loved it.

    Went to Standard FF 1.5 and it was even better.

    i decided to try the optimized and it kicks ass. alot faster IMO
