    There have been quite a few topics on browsers but couldn't really find any that specifically talked about favorite ones with Tiger.
    On my ibook (Tiger) I'm using Safari.
    For those of you on Tiger - what browser are you using?
    On my emac OS X I'm using Firefox 1.0 and IE as a backup for those websites that won't support Firefox.

    I'm using Camino because I started to experience slow downs w/ Safari. Ok to be fair, I used Safari, then when it started to become sluggish I tried Firefox. Then on MR I heard mention that Camino was made specifically for Macs so I gave it a whirl. Instantly deleted Firefox. :D On occasion, Camino doesn't render a site properly, then I switch back to Safari.

    Same as devilot76, I use Camino and Safari as a backup browser. I use Camino because I love it dearly (see sig). I think it's the best featured, fastest Mac browser (a few bugs, but they're getting ironed out all the time). Plus, it gives me both the yummy cocoa aftertaste, and the yummy open-source aftertaste. :D

    I have found Safari to be far and away the best browser for Tiger...

    I usually use Safari, Camino, or my own browser surfDude (check my blog for it). I won't touch Firefox until it gets to the same level of Mac friendliness that Safari and Camino are at.

    Safari.

    Although you need AcidSearch (remember to turn off the "Check For Updates Automatically", since there seems to have been some server issues lately) and Taboo (and TinkerTool for those hard-to-reach preferences) to really make it better than Firefox... ;)

    I use Safari. I have Firefox, and occasionally fire it up for sites that don't work right in Safari, but I really like Safari a lot better.

    I am a Camino man. I tried Safari for a bit but it just not for me. Camino has a few limitations but gives me te experience I'm after.

    Safari all the way for me. Can be a little frustrating at times with being slow to load pages but i'm hoping my imminently arriving PowerBook purchase will help solve that :)

    Safari. I use Camino for my Internet banking site because for whatever reason when I put my password in in Safari it claims it's wrong, but when I use Camino it works. Very bizarre.
