    I'm a bit of Mac newbie and have just purchased an iMac which I love so far.

    I'm currently getting to grips with it but just wondered what people thought of Safari as a web browser and if there was better to use?

    I'm used to, and like, Google Chrome from my Windows days and just wondered if it was wise to install this with Safari already on?

    Has anyone had any experience of using Chrome on Mac OS X for iMac?

    Many thanks!

    Well, considering there's no Chrome for Mac OS X (yet), you need not worry about it. ;)

    I use Safari most of the time, and Firefox occasionally. Chrome is due on the Mac in the next few months, in the meantime I'd give Safari a go.

    Ahh, looks like I'll be giving Safari a go for a while then!

    It's the first time I've used it and finding it quite good so far anyway.

    One more question, will keep it in the same thread - can you download MSN Messenger for Mac?

    Yes, although a lot of people (including me) prefer Adium...

    Yeah, the MSN for mac lacks essential features such as Audio/Video chat. And Adium doesn't make up for it either...

    Damn Microsoft =_=.

    I'm pretty sure aMSN supports this and works on OSX...
