    Just curious because the tab function is something I've grown quite accustomed to with IE7 and Firefox. Granted I can just dl Firefox once I get my iMac, but I kinda wanted to give Safari a shot. I'm also looking for some opinions on Safari on if you like or if you use Firefox. Thanks for any info!

    Safari has tabs, but you'll need to go into the preferences to enable them. :)
    I use Safari as my primary browser, as I find it snappier than firefox.

    Simple answer...Yes

    You know you can download Safari for Windows right?

    Go here....Download Safari

    Remember Google is your friend. :)

    I've heard that there were some issues with the Windows version of Safari though, which kind of discouraged me from doing so. My iMac SHOULD be here this week, so I can hold off a couple more days from using it. Thanks for letting me know that you can use tabs though, that's enlightening.

    I only use Firefox because of its ad-blocking.

    If anybody knows of an effective and working ad-blocker, let me know. I don't want to have to right click on all these ads and no allow them because that would be annoying and it would take forever.

    No problem. I've not had any issues with the latest version of Safari but I take your point. I also admire your self-control. If it were me I'd be iching to get going. I'd be constantly hitting refresh on the UPS/Fedex trackiing pages and staring out of the window waiting for the damn truck to come round the corner.

    Hope you enjoy when it when it does come. I remember my first time like it was yesterday. You lucky swine! :)

    Let us know how you get on

    Same here, Firefox rarely and only for ad-blocker. There is, however, the occasional site that doesn't load correctly in Safari which usually makes me switch to FF for a few days before crawling back to Safari.

    I wish I could get all my passwords and usernames to work on Safari. Then, that would be another reason I can use Safari since I have all my information in Firefox.

    Good point, I've been taken that for granted this whole time! Now I have to try and remember all my passwords...dammit, or I guess I'll just stick w/ Firefox.

    My Safari must have a better memory than yours, it remembers all my username and passwords just fine.

    From Firefox. I have a lot of usernames/passwords on Firefox, not on Safari. I wish there was a way move the Firefox ones to Safari.

    I use Opera, because i find it easier to use than either firefox or safari, as i dont have to go looking for various extensions and helper programs.

    It's probably better you remember them anyways. It's safer. Though I do feel the need to emphasize once more that Safari does keep track of passwords if it so desired.

    FireFox with coloured tabs

    Safari has the edge with Quartz composer Mime types.
    They play directly in Safari, a screen saver in your browser anyone?
    Maybe Asteroids

    This link above only works in Safari.
    FireFox has loads of plugin's (add-on's) for development like http live-headers.
    At the moment I use both.:eek:

    Does anyone here use Chrome for Mac

    I have used Chrome in the PC environment and when I purchased my MacBook Pro last week I missed Chrome's tabs so when I found a Mac version of Chrome I downloaded it. Are there any issues with this browser and Mac PCs?

    I know some Mac users who SWEAR by Chrome, but I'm not impressed by it - I think FireFox 4 has a lot more customizing options and it's also very snappy

    I use Chrome. I like it's speed, stability and the small things it has
