The main difference for me is that Firefox's method for closing one tab is annoying to me.Nermal said:I haven't seen any real difference between the tabbed browsing in FF and Safari. What feature are you talking about?
Yep, I reckon that's one of the main reasons so many more people visiting this site (a Mac-advocate site) use Safari as shown in a recent poll. Sorry, I'm far too lazy to look it up. I personally can't stand Firefox or any of the affiliate programs. They're too messy in both GUI and their placement of essential files.yellow said:Otherwise, FF is too Netscape like.. and interface I cannot stand.
There are a number of plugins for safari. visit this site:swindmill said:I'm suprised how little weight is given to the extensions offered by FF. I use several that are now essential to browsing.
/If anyone knows of any Safari add-ons in these areas I've mentioned, please share.
I don't. Try saving any page that has a CSS and firefox messes it up completely. Neither the CSS file, nor the files linked through the CSS file are saved. which means that for a large number of sites that follow web-standards, Firefox is unable to save a page properly.swindmill said:I love the way Firefox saves complete Web pages.
Safari list shortcut: type part of the item (like a state name or whatever). Press Return to select it.yellow said:IMO, FF has only 1 thing on Safari. Long select bars with scrolling. Having to actually wade through a jillion entries in a scroll bar on Safari sucks. Otherwise, FF is too Netscape like.. an interface I cannot stand.
I believe that Tiger adds the ability to save an entire page with "the works" from Safari. Anyone know how well that feature works with CSS?Arpan said:The only browsers that manage to save CSS properly are IE (windows) and Opera.
These are all very valid points, I remember how impressed I was with the searchbar at the bottom of the page when it first came up.Mitthrawnuruodo said:- Firefox can allow some sites to open pop-ups (e.g. the wireless netwoork at school has a portal solution where I have to have a pop-up window open to have access), while in Safari pop-ups ar on/off making surfing at school a pop-up-H*ll...
- the Searchbar at the bottom of the screen is fantastic, and makes Safari's (and all other browsers) Find-window seem like dark age technology.
- Firefox asks if you really want to quit if you hit cmd-Q with more than one tab open... hasn't got a count of how many times I accidently hit cmd-Q in Safari when I was aiming for cmd-W (right next to each other), and then 'lost' all my tabs and had to go through History to get them back...
That said: I'll give Safari 2.0 a try when Tiger arrives... I don't mind 'switching back'...
Yes, but that only works if you know what you're looking for. Unfortunately most often I use Safari at my work with some home-grown crap written for the web by people who clearly don't understand the web. They'll create a select bar with 200 names! WTH?nagromme said:Safari list shortcut: type part of the item (like a state name or whatever). Press Return to select it.
