Yes, which browser du you use - and why?
Article: Browser Smackdown
there isn't IE7 for mac. lol
There are a lot of PC users here who are interested in macs.
Safari on the Mac. Opera on everything else. Not sure why I don't use Opera on the Mac really, I guess it just doesn't look as nice.
Nothing comes close to the number of features in Opera in a default install. Mouse Gestures, session saving, recalling closed windows, duplicating windows, movable tabs, zoomable pages, bit torrent, to name but a few. I'm aware that most (all?) of these are available with FireFox extensions, it's just that they work out-of-the-box with Opera.
I love my firefox extensions, I couldn't live without em
ooh, maybe better put this in community discussion board then, ...
Mac: Safari 2
PC: Firefox 2
I found a sort of all-inclusive list for the AdBlock extension and man, it almost makes me want to use Firefox over Safari. I have an adblocking style sheet and SafariBlock, but it's nowhere near as good.
FF is too slow on my old G3!
Safari 95% of the time. Firefox for the few pesky sites that Safari struggles with.
Firefox because I prefer the way it handles RSS (can just have drop down lists from the bookmark toolbar) . I can't find another browser that works like that, so I haven't switched. i've tried, but always come back to Firefox.
Exactly the same here
This question has been asked many times before
My usual answer is Safari - however I'm posting from Firefox right now because I've got so many tabs open in Safari that it's become really sluggish and spinning beachballs at me. Firefox 2 is a definite improvement over previous versions; I like the implementation of 'sessions', as with Opera. I won't touch IE (well I don't have a PC) unless it's work-related or someone's holding a gun to my head.
Firefox on the PC because I like using the extensions, and I dislike IE!
Safari on the Mac because I just like the feel of it more. Less clunky? FF on the Mac doesn't thrill me at all though.
Break down for sites that can't handle certain browsers. I'm trying to ween myself over to Opera for Macintosh, but I don't like its lack of Services support in OS X.
Macintosh: Safari 75%, Opera 24%, Camino 1%.
PC: Opera 95%, Firefox 4%, IE5/6/7 1%.
Firefox is too buggy and bogged down for me to enjoy.
I only use Firefox for all the nice add-ons you can download. They come in very handy.
Safari is just to plain for my taste
Firefox since Safari is too picky on site's html.
I've tried the new Drosera add-on for Webkit, but it's not as easy to use.
omniweb hands down.
IE7 is not popular
Sorry, I posted the thread in the wrong forum. Could an admin please move it?
IE7 just came out with a beautiful new update. Way faster, phising protection, tabbed browsing. It is really good, I actually like it better than Firefox, and almost as much as Safari.
IE7 have adblock? Didn't think so. I cannot browse without it now, especially with those flashing ads.
FF3, can't wait.
Actually... the new one has significantly improved on the old pop-up blocker, I did a pop-up ad test and blocked them all...
Adblock also / primarily blocks embedded ads....
Firefox 2.0 beats IE7 hands down
