    I really don't know what I should be looking for actually.

    My mac will NOT load google. No google website, no search from toolbar, no Gmail, no Gmail notifier. Same deal whether I use Safari or Firefox.

    My XP install running in Parallels can reach Google sites just fine.

    What the hell is going on?

    to piss you off.

    firefox is slower on the powerbooks, safari has always been the fastest with the same features and then some..... however on macbooks or otherwise I have never asked......

    You're running a macbook so have you clocked both browsers to see if there is a speed difference?

    I have a 17in Powerbook so Safari is the best choice for ME speed wise and all the features I could want.

    17" C2D Macbook Pro here. If there's a speed difference, it's not visible. I'm just more adjusted to the way Firefox handles things like opening links in new tabs, etc. because I am just an infant in Mac territory (first mac, less than a month) and Firefox is familiar turf for me.
