    I always knew Firefox isnt the best browser for OSX, but i just recently started to convert to Opera and man does Opera runs a ton better. Free scrolling through a ton on images with firefox is almost impossible, but on opera its smooth as silk. Horizontal scroll will not work on firefox but works flawlessly on Opera.

    Sadly I still use Firefox as my main browser and only fire up opera when a thread or webpage has heavy images. I just cannot live without the extension of firefox. I know opera have many feature, but the extensions like adblock is the reason why I stick to firefox when opera is a better browser overall.

    Are there any nightly build on firefox that runs better than the current version of 2.0.0.6?

    not even going to say it...

    anyways, check out Camino as well. It's what firefox on a mac should be without the extentions...

    Without extension I would just use Opera....is there adblock on Opera? If there is, then im pretty much set.

    Same thing I need my FF extentions. I recently tried Camino and runs really fast compared to FF but theres some things that bug me in it. It's a trade off.
