what is the best/top mac web browser
I'd just download Firefox and Chrome and compare to Safari, and see which you like best. There's no definitive best browser, only preferences. Personally, I like Firefox, but I know there are a lot of Chrome fans out there, and some people stick with Safari because it's already there or out of preference.
its firefox for me.

I liked safari on mac until i realised how buggy it is compared to others. Try chrome, you'll love it.
Chrome by far. It is the fastest web browser.
Just a few of the many threads where you'll find additional answers to your question:
New to MBP -- Browser
Which Browser are you all using??
Which is your favorite Mac browser and why?
Which Web browser on OS X has the Least Amount of Memory Leaks?
Most reliable browser?
the best web-browser
Which is the best browser for Mac, esp. for clarity?
I just use safari. It does what I need.
Firefox has cool extensions but they make it buggy and a real hog. And since it's not very interesting "out of the box"… you get my point.
Safari is great and lightweight but the interface is outdated and you can't customise it at all which sometimes makes it a pain to use…
Chrome has the same rendering engine as Safari. It might be (very) slightly slower and its interface isn't customisable either but it feels really good and up to date.
I'd recommend Chromium well over Chrome though. (This is the open-source project Chrome is based on. Same software without Google's spywares…)
Opera is very nice. It takes awhile to start up compared to safari, but pages load much faster and clicking back doesn't refresh the page.
A tip: If you're gonna use safari, better use the WebKit version. It's exactly like safari but it gets updated a lot so it works better.
which browser is a preference thing. i personally use safari. i've used all of the browsers before and i tried safari simply because it was there. i like the simple customization and the feel of it right now. perhaps later on I will switch.
hell, nothing says you can't have more than one, either.
I personally use Safari on Mac, and Internet Explorer on Windows. Whatever comes with the OS, I use and works great.
I thought Chrome, but.......
I really liked chrome, but it has been having bugs. When I'm on youtube, most videos play excellent, but other skip badly. It's not my internet, and the audio is continuous, but the video skips. Also, starting today, on most videos, chrome doesn't even show the video, it has audio, but no video. If anyone knows what the problem is please let me know.
what i use
-for mac os (9.2.2) -classilla (really no other option if you want to use mac os with modern web pages)
-for ppc with osx tiger,leopard -camino (like the default flash and ad off option,also the speed)
-for intel -firefox (for some plugins that i would miss using safari or chrome)
safari all the way
Chrome - it sets the bar for all web browsers.
They are all pretty great in general these days. Opera. although nice, isn't really supported in a lot of web sites because of it's low market share.
Chrome / Safari
-use the Webkit rendering Engine
-uses Gecko rendering engine
