    hi just bought a macbook.
    wondering which web browser is the best.

    opera? firefox? safari?

    i use opera and firefox on the pc.....and very happy with them. they have good reputations for security and speed and functionality.

    thanks

    ps. ive heard ebay dont work properly with safari. thats not good.

    is safari just a gimmick, or a real serious browser?

    Try them all. They're free! I use Safari personally, even on eBay. I've always been very happy with it. :)

    I use safari daily. With eScam, as well... when I'm forced to. There is no other browser installed on my machine, and I'd not have it any other way.

    Firefox is my browser of choice on Weindoze, but I'm a Safari purist on the Mac.

    I prefer Firefox on my PCs and my Macs. I sometimes use Safari. Rarely use MSIE. I even have an old version of Netscape that I use maybe once a month.

    I use Safari, but, if you don't like it, give the others a test drive.

    I used Safari on Leopard since I've had Leopard, but recently switched to Firefox as it's much faster, and oddly enough doesn't crash as much. I can and do use both. Firefox it is for me at the moment, though it could switch easily.

    Again as has been mentioned, a quick search will show you many, many threads on this topic. :)

    Opera is the greatest web browser on the face of the earth, and there is no web browser better than Opera. There are plenty of threads about this already, so you should search, but Opera is the best Browser for any OS.

    By the way, you shouldn't judge an App based on its name...if you don't like seeing "Safari," just rename it. Also, a safari is an expedition where you observe animals or hunt them, not a zoo.

    For me I have used Safari and Firefox and I have to choose Safari as the best of those two.

    I use Firefox... it's fast enough and it's got brilliant add-ons I don't want to miss.

    Some swear by Camino, it's advertised as the Firefox for Mac, but I could never warm up to it. Give it a try if you wish.

    Me personally, I strongly recommend Firefox.

    If you're using them on XP, your opinion doesn't count in this case, cause they are very different on OSX.:)

    You are a troll

    If Windows is your baby, what are you doing on a Mac forum?
    You sound like a 12 year old.
