    Maybe it's just me, but Safari seems to have some major memory leaks or at least is a huge memory hog...

    I just loaded firefox and it is nice and doesn't seem to suck as much memory while still being fast.

    What is your favorite browser and why?

    Safari for me, and I haven't been experiencing the memory leaks I was getting with Chrome (but that was a while back)

    Safari has been very fast and stable for me

    The best browser is the one you like. For me, I use Safari as the primary one and Firefox as a secondary one.

    When on Windows, it's Firefox all the time.

    There's no problem with your thread. You aren't the first one to ask this question, and you won't be the last. :)

    Chrome overall is best of all on OS X or Windows.

    Firefox for stability and customized possibilities. Safari is well, how should we say, simply bleh.
