    I know this is a novice question, but please . . . . :eek:

    Is it possible to load Firefox 3.03 on the same machine where I am running Safari?

    If this can be done and I try it and don't like it, can I easily back Firefox 3 out, or is it one of those apps that plants tentacles all over the machine?

    Thanks for your help.

    You can run and install browsers simultaneously in OS X and Windows with no issues.

    That's one little advantage of using OS X, programs don't plant program files everywhere. If you are too keen about that, you can use AppZapper which deletes the .plist and other files of the application.

    + Flock = 4 on mine
    I was running SeaMonkey and IE for Mac
    but now I only use those to test stuff

    Also, I use AppDelete to remove apps.:)
