    Just a quick poll to see how many of you are on Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc. I use Safari, but I have Chrome just as another browser.

    Chrome is my main browser, Safari my second (occasional), and Firefox my third (almost never).

    Safari was my previous main Mac browser, and all I miss from it is iOS bookmark syncing and the ClickToFlash extension.

    Firefox user here. I use Safari occasionally. I dislike Chrome, though.

    Google Chrome. I was a Safari user, but I got tired of the memory issues.

    Chrome (Windows and Mac)
    Chromium (Ubuntu)

    Safari or IE if I suspect something is not working properly with Chrome

    I have Chrome on all my Mac's and PC's. I was a big Firefox proponent until Chrome became so fast, and the Chrome Store matured to the point where it has the best extensions, add-ons etc. There are lots of things that one can only do in Chrome.

    It'd be nice to see a significant improvement in Safari with the upcoming Mountain Lion. I used to use Safari a few years ago but recently it's lost some of it's usefulness.

    Chrome on my Macs and PC's. Before Chrome it was Firefox. Never was a fan of Safari or Internet Explorer

    They have the same thing in Chrome. Just enable "Click to Play". It's in the settings. It is better than ClickToFlash because it won't allow ANY plugins to run unless you click on them, java included.

    It's under "Content Settings"

    So, I'm guessing virus safe since the flashback was getting in through Java. I have Click to Play enabled in Windows. No more ads in websites. Great.

    Used to use Safari all the time, and then finally a couple of months ago I tried Google Chrome. I started liking it more than Safari almost instantly.

    I'm aware of that and use it, but I prefer ClickToFlash for the additional features: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=14931112&postcount=10

    For ClickToFlash for all plugins, there is ClickToPlugin.

    I too have had no issues with Safari when I've used it. It sure comes in handy for sites other browsers choke on. I can even say the same of the various public Safari betas I've used. No troubles whatsoever!

    Heck, even the Firefox nightlies (and by extension, builds in the Aurora and Beta branches, along with the stable releases) have given me zero troubles.

    Chrome.

    Used to use Firefox, but due to it's crap support for Lion (even to this day), I've ditched it.

    The Firefox team is working on supporting Lion better, but that work won't make it into Firefox until version 16. :(

    Which, at the rate it's going... shouldn't be very long. Seems like they're going at 2-3 new version releases a month. 13 is almost out.

    To be honest i'm really surprised so many use safari, I mean I know it's the default pony in the Mac stall, and webkit is nice of course but other than that, at least for me, safari seems to lag pretty far behind Chrome and FF in features.
