Hello, this is my first posted thread
Like the title says, I'm just wondering
what browsers do other users, well...use!
I'm using Safari but I'm recently
reacquainting myself with Opera,
a browser I used constantly
on Windows...

I like the animations in the new Safari, but the memory leak problem is too big. I switched to chrome for most of my browsing and love it! My only problem with Chrome is that it isn't color-managed, and I'm a professional photographer who does a fair amount of web-based image critique. I use Safari in those situations. Come on Google, incorporate color management into your browser already!

Same here, but I was hoping Google doing an update for a 64bit version ;) and of course no scroll bar plz.

I mainly use Chrome. Its performance is really terrific with the prefetching and instant searching. Safari and Firefox are my fallback browers for compatibility reasons. And in the worse case scenario, I can use IE 9 through parallels.

Wow thank you!


Also, anyway to bring back the two finger swiping to go back to the previous page on chrome?

Although omnibus solves one of the biggest gripes I had with using safari, for now using Safari since it's the only one I can swipe a finger to go back.

I was using chrome, but it has gotten SO buggy it's become unusable! Back to Safari and really loving the new version!

Ever since I installed Omnibar, I've moved to Safari and haven't looked back

Firefox is taking a hammering at the moment. Its really gone downhill recently and just can't keep up with the others for some reason.

Its a shame as it used to be my "go to" browser.

Exactly.

So for the record, I'm using the latest Safari plus Omnibar.

There's no reason a browser needs to be 64 bit.

I'm using Chrome Canary. I was using Safari 5.1 but it's a poorly coded mess that devours over 2 gigs of my ram in under 2 hours of moderate use.

Download Chrome Canary. With it you can use 2 of 3 finger swipes.

Diehard Firefox user - I use Safari once in awhile, and I can't stand the look and feel of chrome (although I will admit it‘s pretty quick)

There are just too many great extensions in FF for me to want to switch to something else.

When I first came over to Macs, I tried Camino and really liked it, but again, it didn't have the wealth of plugins available. Maybe I'll check it out again later today...

Safari. I used Firefox on Snow Leopard but since it doesn't support Lion's new features I ditched it. Safari definitely grew on me.

Chrome. Couldn't attach to Safari even after 4 years on Mac. Using Firefox for quite a few years before switch to Chrome.

I think I'll wait a week and try to start one of these threads myself. They seem to be popular and people forget they already exist elsewhere.

Safari 5.1, of course.

Chrome and Safari. Can't tell which I like better after the Safari update.

Is it true that Chrome won't be compatible with iCloud.com?

I use Safari 5.1. I was using Chrome for awhile because I really liked the speed, a few extensions, and little convenience features it had, but it used a LOT of %CPU on my MBP. Once Lion stripped the browser of the two-finger swipe, I decided to go back to Safari.

Adblock Plus (http://adblockplus.org/en/) and No-script(http://noscript.net/) are absolutely essential for me, so, Firefox.;)

It's also the fastest/safest browser with these two add-ons, I suggest all intermediate level computer users to give it a try, I assume advanced users are already using them :D

I use the following in this order:
Chrome > Safari > Firefox

Some websites I frequent are not Webkit friendly, so I have to use Firefox.
