    i'm sure this has been done and I should probably search. But i wanted to see what everyone is using as of now, since consistant data is what i'm looking for.

    both. some days I use safari, some days I use firefox. my Firefox tends to be destroyed by the interactive banners on myspace, so I use safari for myspace as a precaution.

    Safari.

    Firefox is too slow IMO. I just wish Safari had instant search capabilities like Firefox....Best Feature Ever!

    well, i've got adblock working hardcore on myspace with firefox, i literally get NO advertisements from myspace. If anyone wants my adblock filter i'll be more than happy to share it. I like the speed off safari, but i'm WAY too used to firefox w/extensions to keep using it.

    oh wells.

    My ibook is currently dead, but my browser of choice was, and still is, FF, regardless of which OS it's on.

    FireFox is a port. The whole thing isn't built for a Mac. Camino on the other hand is a Mozilla product built for the Mac. ie. It uses Cocoa and follows Apple design principles. Firefox is still stuck in the Mozilla style world.

    after playing with all of them, i have to have firefox extensions to make my life easier. since safari nor camino will, firefox is the way to go for me.

    fyi, to those who are having problems with firefox going thru the history when you try to scroll left/right. do this to fix:

    In Firefox, type "about:config" in the address bar. Look for these fields and change them to these values:

    mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action to 0
    mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.numlines to 1

    found it on a macforums and it lets you scroll side to side.
