This has been discussed ad nauseam. If you want Firefox to be more like Safari why not just use Safari?

If only there was some way of making Firefox load as quickly as Safari. It's the slowest-loading application for me bar Office for Mac 2008.

On my Macbook Pro, Safari takes just about forever to load anything.. Firefox is almost instant. So I use Firefox 3 now and NetNewsWire for my RSS.

-Safari is slow for me
-RSS Feed is amazing but updates every 30mins
-No "New Tab" button, I am use to using a button next to the address bar(I know you can use Command + T but I don't like that way).
-Safari sometimes refuses to open links!

I don't want to sound rude, but as tuffluffjimmy said, there are a gazillion threads on this already, several that are still active

You might want to join in on them rather than starting another
You will find more opinions there

I like them both but prefer Firefox for all the add ons etc. The new Firefox 3
is much faster than 2.

Along with thirty other threads that all give the same answer.
