    I know, FF is a love hate relationship with me. It's such a resource hog, but it's so nice to customize it...

    I agree. I used FF on my PC and still prefer it over IE but Safari does everything I want.

    I have 6 browsers that I have played with, and Safari smokes them all in reliability and speed. I wish they would kill the aluminum look and then things would be money. Still, it's my default browser.

    I got an account at www.memestreams.net and I've never bookmarked anything anywhere else since. It has the added benefit of finding me shit I will like based upon my recommendatiuons, too. There's a little javascript bookmarklet button you install in IE/firefox/Safari, and it will bookmark any page you are currently on, with any text you have quoted, and will allow you to comment too. SOOooo much better than bookmarks.

    Safari is pc based not mac? I thought the mac browser was called safari or maybe im just retarded..

    but FF is wut i use and i've been sick of it for a while, but as for keeping my bookmarks i just use google sync to save all mine, it works pretty well for me..

    but i'll try flock when i get home.

    And a few less features it seems. You can't set up folders in the bookmarks toolbar. That's enough for me to pass on it even as pretty as it is.

    I refuse to use skinning aps as even the ones that are sworn to take no resources still take resources.

    i dont think thats the case though. when the skinning apps are run, it executes a one time change of all the .png files that the gui for the apps are composed of. things like white-out, uno, shapeshifter, once you change the gui files, thats it. nothing runs in the background.

    thats why when you uninstall one of the said programs, it just replaces the original aqua gui files and then its back to normal.

    to get a better idea, cntrl+click an app, like safari for instance, and display the package contents. you will see a folder in there called resources. its nothing but images that constitute the gui. no processes.
