    Guys, im looking for the best web browser to play videos, mostly youtube vids. I love Safari , but there are times when I play a video, usually I pause it , fully load the video before i play it, but when i do , it refreshes back to the beginning, and the video i waited to load for minutes is gone. What is the best browser for playing videos ( fast and not buggy ) ?

    Below sea level
    according to the latest benchmarks, firefox is the fastest:

    (I believe safari, just like safari on iOS, now only keeps a limit of websites in it's cache. Meaning; if you open 8 websites Safari will forget the tab/window /website you last opened and reload it when you watch it again. Browsers other than safari don't do this, if I'm right).

    hmm depends cuz startup time wise chrome beats the other (mac ones).

    navigation time wise they say firefox beats chrome but in my opinion chrome tends to be faster, even with no-script and adblock activated in firefox.

    I guess try them out and see for yourself.
