Which is the best and fastest browser for Mac?
I would like to use Safari 3 but without Pithhelmet support I just can't so I am using Firefox with Adblock. I just don't know how people can stand all those flashing flipping adverts.
Firefox. I'd like to like Safari but it's missing a lot of features that I use frequently. Plus you can't resize windows past the dock, which is retarded.
Don't forget OmniWeb. I use Camino, but I might return to OmniWeb, mainly for the per-site preferences.
I miss PithHelmet too but I'd rather use Safari with ads than anything else right now. Version 3 is great.
Safari. Sure they may be browsers with better features, but there aren't better browsers.
Safari 2 was okay... Safari 3 is grrreat!
Not necessarily. It makes a bit of sense. You can't really see what's behind the dock anymore in Leopard.
Opera is the best browser, hands down, for any platform. That thing is pure awesome in the shape of an application.
I use Safari 3 because I'm big on OS integration. I might give Firefox 3 a try, as it's supposed to have a much more native feel on OS X. But too bad it will never be able to take advantage of system-wide spell checking, Keychain support, etc. the way that Camino can.
Safari 3 is snappy as hell...for Safari.
I love Firefox. I also like the larger navigation buttons on Firefox...they are too small on Safari (unless maybe there's a way to make them larger).
I too was disappointed that Pithhelmet isn't supported, but Safari Adblock does a perfect job.
For me it has definitely replaced Pithhelmet!
They all have their downsides, and advantages.
Firefox isn't very native, not quite as good as it's PC counterpart, but add-ons really do make this a great browser despite that.
Camino, I change my mind often on it. I love how native it is, but the lack of features is a big turn off.
Most my experience from Safari is from the Panther version, which sucks with it's outdated Webkit.. and also Safari 3 on Windows.. so I wont really comment on it.
Opera is full of features, but in the end it falls short of add-ons that Firefox has. Also a lot of annoyers like having to-reinstall after updates.. etc.
Overall I like Firefox for it's add-ons. A nice skin, and optimized form-widget build and it's native enough for me.
What, no option for IE5?
Oh, there are opinions...
However, I'm not sure the language would be appropriate for any thread here!
Safari. It's the most intuitive and 'Mac-like', and it's come a long way since its first inception.
I love Safari but it eats up way too much memory over time. Seems like it has major memory leak issues.
As of Leopard: Safari.
It should at least be an option, they could just make it snap to the dock or something. Scaling the window below the dock looks much better and doesn't waste nearly as much space.
I love safari....
as a web developer, the standards compliance and CSS3 support acts almost as an aphrodisiac, well not quite, thats the girlfriends job, but you get the point.
and its F.A.S.T.
Safari 3! i love it, shame that it's still brushed metal in Tiger
