I'm waiting for the Mac-optimized Firefox as well. In the meantime, I'm using Camino which is for all intents and purposes the same thing, but I think based on earlier code version. It also doesn't have firefox plug-in support.dontmakemehurtu said:Safari is one I'd stick with. That is, until the official "Mac-optimized" version of Firefox is released by Mozilla. But, even if now it looks like a port of an app originally made for another OS, I use it more often than Safari due to the extensions.
Thats exactly the point, why I use Firefox - Safari suffers one some pages. Got to try Camino out sooner or later..aloofman said:I'm kind of split on this. I think Firefox renders more pages correctly than Safari does, probably because of its multi-platform development. But I find the tabs system better on Safari, especially that you can delete them individually. On Firefox, you get one (X) button that you can only use on the active tab. Also, Safari's automatic fill in for various fields and URLs is better overall and so are the bookmarks.
I find myself using Safari most of the time, but Firefox for certain websites that work better with it.
Camino will be better when it is not beta, right now it is to slow for me. Guess I'm staying on FireFox.eclipse525 said:I hear Camino is the best or at least GOING to be the best browser out there. It simply blows everything away AND it's still Beta(i think).
OmniWeb - and don't get me wrong on this b/c I'm a longtime licensee - needs to be faster. It renders pages beautifully using a modded WebCore engine, but the outstanding featureset just seems to slow it down ridiculously on my 2x2.0 G5.risc said:I prefer Camino to Firefox but my favourite browser would have to be OmniWeb. At the moment though I actually use Safari because of an app (written in Apple Script) that allows me to program my EyeTV 400 here in Australia even though El Gato don't support it.
As for the question Safari versus Firefox try them both and see which you like, Camino is a much more Aquafied Gecko based browser.
indeed. you can accomplish the same thing in firefox, but it is a lot harder to do. stupid clunky interface...wrldwzrd89 said:Here's what's in Safari's favor:
-great 3-tier bookmark manager (bookmarks bar, bookmarks menu, bookmark collections)
