    Mozilla? Mozilla is old and not updated anymore. Do you mean Firefox?

    Since getting my iMac, I've used Safari exclusively on this machine, as it works on every site I go to.
    On my old Windows machine FireFox was my browser of choice.
    Maybe I'm just too lazy to download FF onto my iMac, but I prefer to think I simply don't need it and certainly don't want extraneous clutter on this iMac.
    Good luck with whatever you decide on.

    i've only had my mac for a week and half but so far i really like safari, its neat, clean and fast plus i have all my bookmarks easily accesible in the bookmarks bar thats really all i need in a browser. Never really liked firefox even when i was on windows i always stuck to IE. firefox in my opinion has a cluttered interface and is a little slower. so safari for me.

    I thought the race between the two was very close until Firefox introduced the "awesome bar" in their 3.0 betas. I like the ability to use extensions for just about anything on FireFox, and Safari is cleaner and looks better on some sites (plus the find feature rocks). But the "awesome bar" and tags in the upcoming Firefox 3.0 pushes that over the top. I haven't clicked on a bookmark in 2 months because everything is handled perfectly via the location bar. Pretty neat.
