    I've been using WebKit since I read about the huge rendering improvements lately. It's pretty awesome imo. It is quite 'snappier' than Safari, and I haven't noticed any bugs in my day-to-day (pretty intensive) use.

    I have been using it instead of Safari for a very long time.

    I've said this a few time before but you can use NightShift to update webkit for you, and Lingon to schedule nightshift to start automatically everynight.

    Nope, I'm a FF man and it will take a lot to make me change :)

    webkit nightly might break plugins, one thing you should pay some attention to. other than that, I found webkit to be quite stable most of the time

    But again, its hard to imagine most day-to-day users to use nightly build.

    I probably use safari as often as webkit, just to update myself on webkit's development. Mostly a Firefox user...

    i've used the nightly for a while now, but what's that other app that comes with it? :confused:

    Drosera? I think that's a Java-script debugger.
