    FF. Camino is still lacking a bit.

    As far as I know, the current version of Safari doesn't do tabbed browsing (but I heard the version in 10.4 will)...that's the biggest killer for me.

    Camino is basically firefox w/ more of the mac widget set and feel to it. I've used it this afternoon and it's still too buggy for prime time use...

    camino. because if i press the applekey+click it opens the window behind and applekey+` switches windows. silly reason but allows my right hand free for "other stuff"

    Apple + Shift + right arrow or left arrow to move through the tabs

    I've been using the G4 optimized version of Firefox for awhile, but I have had it lock up on me quite a few times in the past couple of weeks, so I have gone back to Safari. I haven't really had the time or patience to investigate why I was having so much trouble with FF before.

    I have used Camino in the past before, but was not a fan. Seemed slower to me than FF and Safari. But that was quite some time ago. They've since released some new versions and that may no longer be the case.
