    I know this has probably been ask a dozen times, but what web browser do you prefer/use most between Safari 3.1.1, Firefox 3.0b5, or something else and why?

    Safari. Starts faster. Restarts faster. Seems faster in general.

    Opera 9.5 Beta 2. Safari. And Firefox 3 Beta 5 every once in a while.

    I was a long time Camino use until the newer version of Safari came out, which I used for a good long while. I'm now on Firefox 3 beta 5 because I like the plug ins, the nice speed boost it receive, lower memory usage, and nice new interface.

    Firefox was always my browser of choice back in the Windows days, but in osx I prefer Safari, it plays more nicely with the rest of the os. :)

    I use a combination of Safari and Firefox. Firefox is usually used for websites that don't support Safari, but I think both are definitely great browsers and the only reason why I default to Safari first is that it feels just a tad faster. Cheers.

    I'm on FF3 b5

    Starts pretty fast (almost as fast as Safari) and there's the added benefit of the addons.

    I've always used Opera with Safari as a back-up for the occasional site that won't load in Opera.

    I am disappointed with the Mac version of Opera though. :(

    There are a couple of features, most notably Minimise Tab, that are missing compared to the Windows version. Hopefully they'll sort it soon.

    I don't think we need another of these, at least this week...
