    Apple is a good place to start. VersionTracker and MacUpdate are also very good

    Only a million.

    I like Camino, but Firefox, Shiira, Opera, and Flock are probably the best known and most used to the rest.

    They are all free, so download them and see if they do what you want a broswer to do.

    emaja answered that very well. this is also a good list of applications. It also has some very good suggestions in the comments. It will be good once you get comfortable with your new system.

    Have a dig around in the forums here and you'll usually find a useful link to a specific piece of software. As for Safari alternatives, there are many - as listed above - though give Safari a chance, it's by far my fav web browser.

    MacWorld has a pretty good website as well as magazine.

    To be honest, I very rarely have layout problems with Safari. If you're running into that kind of thing, your best bet is probably Mozilla Camino (Mac-only) or Mozilla Firefox. Both are official Mozilla browsers and use the same Gecko rendering engine. Since Firefox is the second most popular browser in the world, a lot of web designers specifically check for good compatibility with Firefox. BTW, last I heard, Safari was the third most popular browser after IE6 for Windows and Firefox.
