    This is insane. On firefox, while using my 500mhz ibook with 192ram typing out these posts sometimes the curser would lag now not at all. Also, the pages are loading multiple times faster, everything is much more organized. I'm liking this browser, if you haven't tried it yet try it out.

    I like the new Deer Park beta. It seems to be a helluva lot faster under OS X than previous versions of Firefox.

    Safari is slow for me in general. It loads pages fast but doesn't load windows as fast as I'd like it to.

    I love Firefox for the sidebar bookmarks. I can't stand them being on top as dropdowns in Safari.

    Safari is better in every other area other than that compared to FF.

    I know what you mean.......I'm just getting used to the horizontal type bookmarks. It's not bad once you get used to it.
     
  8. You can access booksmarks bar entries by typing command-# (as seen in the menu). I have the bar hidden.

    Yea, but if you have a shitload of folders w/links in them it's annoying.

    I'd rather just have the sidebar with the folders I access most expanded and the rest closed. I have the desktop real estate for it.
