    I started off with Mozilla Flock but I knew going in that it was a memory hog and it froze alot whenever I used it on my PC. So I eventually made the switchback to Firefox and I noticed that I'm getting some of the same issues.

    So currently I'm using Safari 3.0-- and its ok. But I sorta miss Firefox. What do you guys use?

    When I switched, I stayed with Firefox for a wile... then one day I switched to Safari, and I love it... just install SafariBlock and Inquisitor and you should be all set...

    Actually... check out www.pimpmysafari.com for other add-ons...

    does safari have an "unlinker" type program like firefox done. The beta version of firefox I have sometimes has a lot of problems.

    Yep, get the Firefox 3 beta and see how you like it. It's a lot zippier than Firefox 2. I don't notice much of a difference in speed b/w FF3 and Safari.
