    I'm looking at flights to the US on Virgin-atlantic.com. I've put in exactly the same dates, flights and details.

    The result on Chrome: £2,562.90
    The result on Safari: £2,006.90

    What's that all about?!

    Shop on Safari. Even better, try out Opera, FireFox and Internet Exploder to see if they offer anything better.

    Browser cookies set on your computer via the portal you're buying tickets from. Hotwire, as an example, is known for doing this.

    LOL. I'd think it would be the other way around, by the few month-old article where third party agencies return not the cheapest hit when it finds you are asking the quote from a Mac!
