    Safari is OK, but personally, I prefer Firefox. I've found it renders java better, and the selection of plugins available is great :hs:

    Is just really like the minimalistic look of Safari, I just downloaded FF and didnt really like it much. I never used it when I had a PC.

    i like safari, but i use firefox because ive gotten into the habit of of starting to type a URL, then hitting tab then enter to go to the website i want. in safari, it tabs to the search field and trys to search for nothing. i know i could just stop doing that, but ive been doing it for years, so im used to it.
    also, in safari, google chat doesnt work..... and i can do Apple-1 or Apple-2 to change between the tabs

    I used Camino + Safari for a while, but after the 4th error message of losing my bookmarks in Camino, I went to FireFox + Safari :hs:

    Firefox is a bloated piece of shit in the mac version, it's not like the windows version.

    if you want to switch browsers...
    Camino, Opera, and Safari is what you should use

    Firefox is just a resource hog compared to the others...kinda like the firefox team made it as an afterthought.
