Web browsers for Mac

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Mr. Thermistor, Aug 8, 2005.

  1. Are there any browsers for Mac that don't suck cock?
    Safari is nice, but hangs if you open more than one window and fails at customizability. Firefox is stable, but the interface is horrible.

    Netscape, IE, Camino are feature poor and slow.

    Safari kills me in the fact you can't have a bookmark sidebar and the browser on the right. Much faster than having them as dropdowns from above. Oh, and it doesn't seem to save any info I type in to login at certain sites, even when I tell it to remember.

    Firefox is really buggy & crashes on a lot of media stuff.

  5. I get a lot of crashes with Safari on media. And there are no type handlers.

    Safari 2.0 has been running the fastest on my 500 MHz G3 iMac. Camino is second best. FireFox/Mozilla aren't even worth the trouble.

    Try OmniWeb, uses the same engine as Safari, it might give you some good results.
     
  8. I hate tabs, which is a major reason I don't use Firefox.

    How do you want the tabs to behave?
    Because I'll bet there is an extension for the tabs to behave however you want.

    I use one extension that lets me double-click a tab to close it or if I double-click the tab bar it'll create a new tab. Then I have another extension that lets me move tabs around, even move tabs from one window to another.
    But there are dozens of other extensions that will let you do hundreds of things.
