    Im finding in FireFox sometimes it just does nothing when its supposed to load a page, it just says its 'Done' and loads nothing, I find in Safari similar non-responding take place.

    Is it just me?

    I believe Safari and firefox are both built off Mozilla code.

    You believe incorrectly. Firefox = Gecko, Safari = Webkit.

    I use both browsers at home (on Macs) and at work (on a PC) and I know what you are talking about. I don't think it is the browser. I think the web site is not loaded correctly on the host so no information appears. I could be completely off on this, but I find that I see this occurrence most often when I am opening a page with "breaking news" (sports or news media), leading me to believe it is not the browser.

    I think the best you can do, is try reinstalling safari and/or firefox.

    Try grabbing the new firefox beta - i had given up on firefox and switched to safari, but the newest beta of firefox is really great.

    Ya know, in retrospect, it's pretty funny. For those who have been mac users for a while, we know that browsers in OS X used to be terrible! You had to use either IE iCab or omniweb. Now with Camino, Firefox, Safari, etc, we have some great choices of browsers and they're all getting much better at a very fast rate!


    Wrong.
    Safari = Webkit and is a cocoa app
    Firefox = Mozilla Gecko and is not a cocoa app

    What websites? I think its more likely to be your internet connection to be honest.
