    The good news is that this subject has been discussed repeatedly in dozens of threads in the forums, so you can get a much faster response if, before starting a new repetitive thread, you'll first use this link to search the forums to see what has already been discussed. MacRumors Guides are also a great resource. If you don't find your answer there, let us know and we'll be happy to help! :)

    You've gotten pretty quick with that pre-recorded public service message!

    This is one horse that has been beaten thoroughly!

    Safari or Firefox is basically a personal preference based on how you use your browser

    Minimalist? Safari
    Add-ons? Firefox

    And FWIW, IE is dead on the Mac and not even worth mentioning

    But you can throw in Camino, Opera, Flock and a few others for good measure

    Wouldn't you agree it's pretty ridiculous how many people ask the very same questions, dozens of times, when everything that can be said on the subjects has been said over and over again? I guess either they're so new they don't understand the concept of searching before posting new threads, or they're too lazy. It makes it tougher to find the new issues, when you have to wade through the same old questions, repeatedly!

    I clicked the link that I gave you, entered "safari or firefox" and got these results.

    OP is here to argue, not to ask a sincere question, AFAIK, consider he has no doubt when he claim safari is much faster than firefox, and webkit is 10 times faster than firefox.

    I usually answer sincere question of this kind with the standard answer "try both for yourself".

    but for OP, the answers are:
    firefox is faster
    firefox offers more functions out of box and through addons
    firefox consume less memory
    firefox is more user friendly
    firefox is more secure
    firefox is better.

    I believe you're right! Since when does trying to help someone with useful information make someone a "smart ass"????

    We need a sticky saying "DON'T POST FIREFOX V. SAFARI THREADS!" right at the top of this subforum. :eek:
