    I know this has probably already been done before but there hasn't been one for a while so lets see them votes!

    I voted for Safari because it's my preferred browser, but I also have Firefox/Bon Echo & Camino always running as well.

    I still use IE 5. It took 10 minutes to load this page.


    (But really, I use Safari)

    Safari 3.0.4

    I've tried just about every other browser on the Mac platform, but I always come back to Safari.

    I use FireFox for day to day browsing because of all of the extensions i've packed it with, Safari if i want to Widgetize a section of a webpage, and IE 6 via ies4osx and darwine for browsing those pesky "IE 6 or higher needed to view this page" pages.

    I use safari. It's nothing great really, but I prefer it over Mozilla Firefox and definately over Internet explorer!

    Safari, cause pages scroll smoother when using my trackpad on my MacBook than in Firefox. This isn't the only reason, there are others!

    Patience CJ, patience.

    I primarily use Safari but also occasionally use Camino on my pb and Firefox on my iMac.

    I use Firefox because it is compatible with more sites that I use. It's also what I use at work on Windows and I like having a consistent experience at home.

    There aren't that many browsers available for OS X (a lot more than when Apple brought out Safari 1.0, when there weren't really any good options). Do we really need an other section, can't they just be listed:

    Gecko Based:
    - Flock
    - Mozilla

    WebKit Based:
    - WebKit Nighty Builds
    - AOL Desktop
    - iCab
    - OmniWeb
    - Shiira

    Other
    - Opera

    And Netscape and IE are both discontinued, IE is even unsupported. They should both come off the list.

    Safari :D yet I also have Firefox installed and use it quite often as well, mainly for testing.

    I'm a safari user with FireFox for my backup when sites don't work on Safari. That means I use FireFox about twice a month.

    I do like adblock plus for FireFox a lot though....

    Firefox (specifically, 2.0.0.11) for me. The way it handles RSS feeds in the bookmark bar, and, of course, Adblock, is what keeps me using it over Safari.

    I use Safari on all of my Mac's, and at work on the Vista box I have to use...

    It's nice having the exact same interface at home and at work...

    You should add iCab. Previous versions were horrible on OS X, but the new version 4.0 uses WebKit and rivals OmniWeb in terms of functionality. In all of my tests, it beats the crap out of Firefox 3 Beta 2 in terms of speed.

    iCab has some nice features as well that other browsers don't have (without add ons), like the page outline and page validation with the unique smiley face rating system. It deserves some more attention. I didn't realise it was WebKit based now though.

    Safari and Camino on the odd occasion when I find a site which doesn't work properly with Safari.
