    Safari > Firefox. Firefox is too slow to launch and has a number of other issues on the Mac.

    Takes a good 20 seconds on our new 3.2GHz dual quad-core Mac Pro. Safari takes less then 5 seconds. It's always been slower booting for me.

    On my mbp it's pretty much the same, the only stuff that takes a significant amount of time to load is office. The only thing I hate about firefox though is I can't use three fingers to go back, but in safari there's no unlinker and flashgot :wtc:

    No need for Flashgot. You can grab it from the Activity Monitor in Safari.
