    Following TheAppleBlog's excellent article on browsers. I decided to make a poll to see the most used browser.

    I use Safari most of the time and Camino for things where Safari does not work.

    I use Opera 9 mainly, and Firefox when Opera has trouble with something.

    Shiira. Tried them all and have stayed with Shiira for the past 9 months or so. It rocks.

    I won't abandon Safari until Firefox can impress me.

    I use Safari. Because it seems to support iscroll2 the best from the browsers I've tried.

    I love my Camino on my Intel Mac mini. There may be results recently that suggest it's slower than some alternatives but it's totally instant on my Mac and you can't get faster than that :) It also seems to have wide ranging compatibility, is clean looking and very simple.

    Firefox. (Or Bon Echo 2.0a3 to be precise, Firefox 2.0b1 was just to messed up.)

    Cannot live without flashblock (or adblock plus since flashblock doesn't work with 2.0, yet), my search engines** and find-as-you-type (AcidSearch cannot be used with Webkit nightly builds, which is the only version of Safari/Webkit based browser that doesn't crash regularly on one of my most frequented sites). Sage is also a better RSS reader, IMO, than Safari's built in function.

    Webkit nightly, that I've been trying out for a while is very nice though, and blazing fast. With a bit better plug-ins control (flashblock), search engines and find-as-you-type, I might go back to Safari... maybe...

    I'll probably use Safari until Shiira implements keychain access and a Safari-like spell checker (and gets an attractive set of toolbar icons). Shiira is definitely fast and has great features. The 2.0 release is upcoming and it looks very promising.

    Firefox. Nothing else compares to it for me. I HATE Safari. Ugh. Opera is my back-up browser. I actually LOVE opera, firefox just has a higher comfort level for me.

    Same here. The latest sneaky peek beta is the fastest browsing experience I have had on the mac platform yet.

    I'm using Firefox, but have noticed lately that it is eating ram. I might try another browser for a while.
    I'm on Safari 1, which I didn't find great, so can anyone reccommend an alternative for me?

    I just installed it... it is definitely the fastest browser I've tried. I wish it used tabs like Safari and Firefox though. I'm not really liking the sidebar tabs thing.
