    I've been an avid user of both browsers... but again and again I go back to Safari. Not for Saft, but because of the seemingly daunting feeling of elitism I get from using an out-of-the-box app bundled with OS X. Call me crazy, ignorant, or naïve, it's how I feel.

    As a PC user, I no doubt used Firefox.

    But, have any of you used both and had Saft and AdBlock installed? I prefer adblock because its simple right-click block * capability, while Saft only allows that for images. With Saft, I have the option to block images, plugins, or both, but when I have plugins blocked (for the use of Myspace's annoying flash ads) and want to visit Apple.com, I have to re-enable them in order to see the new Apple ads. Annoying. With Adblock for Firefox, I can simply block individual plugins.

    I'm still torn between the two browsers. Could someone help set me straight?

    You could try SafariBlock for Safari, which I believe is similar to Adblock, although I'm not familiar with Adblock.
