    I prefer Safari, but use Camino for Hotmail. Apart from the minor Safari compatibility issues, I see no reason to use Camino.

    I use both, well if you count the nightly Webkit builds as Safari anyway. At the moment I'm back on Camino on the iMac as I do prefer the way it renders pages. However, it doesn't work with the multi-touch features on my MBP, so Webkit reigns supreme on that one.

    I say use them both, see which YOU prefer. There's no definite answer for everyone.

    I use Camino. I find it faster than Safari. Also i like the fell better.

    One thing I notice is that Safri always uses more memory than Camino.

    yeah, Camino really renders pages faster than safari but many say that you should always use the default browser that comes with your computer (unless you have windows ;)) I lke using camino for speed and safari for everything else but do you guys think that camino is good enough to become someones full time browser?

    Use whichever you prefer. Pros and cons both ways.

    Personally, I'm an Omniweb kinda guy.... :cool:

    I don't think thats a good reason at all to use Safari.

    I recommend Inquisitor and Stand for Safari, maybe even Tabexposé.

    Woah, man, just how many awesome plug in's do I miss out on?

    Inquisitor is so flipping cool! I typed in random garbage just to make sure it wasn't just checking my history and it really does seem to be real time.

    How do I see additional results though from google?

    Also, tabexposé is really cool... but what are the "trial limitations"? Only thing that isn't working is the keyboard shortcut... is that the only limitation? Why would I pay $5 to just use the keyboard shortcut? It seems like there must be some kind of trial period... that or they're basically handing out a free plug-in where you can donate if you like it a lot.

    There's also saft for Safari. Adds some things that others don't. Its not free, but Saft and Inquisitor with Safari = one of the best browsers I have used.

    I use Camino because I never see any ads with it. Ever.

    I use Safari Adblock
    Shortcut works for me, has a limit of 10 tries per time Safari is opened, until you restart it.

    Until Camino includes the right-click option to use the Dictionary on a selected word, I'll stick with Safari.

    Opera has to be the worst approach to a web browser I've seen. *barf*

    Heh, too funny. IE7 was one of the reasons I switched to the Mac. It wasn't quite as bad as that but just as stupid.

    Don't use either. Use Opera. It is the best browser ever. No exceptions. *shuts ears* lalala.

    :p

    Really, though, it's the best.

    There is just too much stuff to comment on in this picture..Why do you need 800 search fields? Especially when you have one that searches "the whole internet" :eek: Ah, good thing I am in World. It's all right now.

    On Windows, before my most recent re-install I had a toolbar that just wouldn't go away. Plenty of things install their own toolbars. Of course this pic is so extreme its ridiculous, but its kinda got a point.

    Camino is a handicap Firefox.... why use it when you can use the new firefox 3 beta... looks similar and is way more powerful


    Safari is probably one of Apple's worst apps ever... no home button by default, i mean c'mon

    I prefer Firefox. Safari only on the iPhone, and only because I have no choice. I wonder if other browser options for the iPhone will be available thru the app store later this year?
