    I just upgraded to Leopard and all went seemingly well. Now Safari wont open and I get a message The application Safari quit unexpectedly. Ive sent a report to apple like 5 times. Any ideas?:confused:

    Yeah, try Firefox ;)

    Seriously though, FF loads much faster in Leopard than it did with Tiger - it's super quick.

    Disregard this post...I determined my problem. In my case, I had reorganized my applications folder under Tiger. The upgrade fail to recognize the changes I had made and as a result failed to replace the old apps with the new ones...easy fix.:rolleyes:

    If people are still using Firefox after Leopard, I feel sorry for their souls. The new safari in Leopard is amazingly fast

    I have used Safari and Firefox under Leopard and for me Firefox has been much faster. Safari was loading new pages a speed of a Apple II GS on dial up.

    I'm sorry , but on my machine that statement couldn't be any farther from the truth. Firefox consistently loads pages faster than Safari (including Apple.com and the Apple.com startpage for Safari) ... Faster page loading, customizable themes, Adblock+FilterSet.G, TabMixPlus, Web Developer extension - the advantages of Firefox over Safari are great, especially now in Leopard, with the faster loading times.
