Well, it is nice to have both work the same way on a Mac and a PC. Makes going between work machines with XP, my home PC with 2000, and my iMac easier for surfing. Safari is nice and all, but I like FF's extensions. And the GO button. Gotta have a GO button.

They should start posting "AppleMatters:" in the title/submission text, so I can stop wasting my time. :mad:

The superiority of OS X over Windows isnít as well defined as the differences between Firefox and IE. Aside from the fact that OS X isnít as far ahead of Windows as Firefox is of IE,
I beg to differ. But that's just me. :rolleyes:

It might suck a lot less on Windows but saying the IE it isnít the best browsing experience available is akin to calling the Universe cozy.

Heh?

Heh?

I think what the author was trying to say was that "saying the IE it isn’t the best browsing experience available is a great understatement". Or something like that.

"saying the IE it isn’t the best browsing experience available is like saying that getting stabbed in the face is mildly annoying"

"saying the IE it isn’t the best browsing experience available is like saying that a gutshot kinda hurts"

I least that's what I think he ment. I'm not really sure, to be honest.

I'm perfectly happy with Safari. My only interest in Firefox is if I get bored with the look of Safari and want to use themes that correlate with my desktop.

Extensions aside, I can't see why anyone would choose Firefox on OS X over Camino (www.caminobrowser.org). So much nicer, but renders pages the same because they're both Mozilla-based.
