    Is safari the best under lion? I like how chrome can go all the way full screen, but you can only leave full screen by exiting how and you guys know most of the bugs.

    So is safari the best for lion?

    So far, yes, safari is best on lion. It is lightning fast and you can sync bookmarks to all other macs/ios devices.

    Safari - for now at least.

    I used to use Chrome (I liked the bookmark syncing between all my computers, mac and PC), but it needs to be updated for Lion. It's a little buggy right now, but it does work.

    Firefox 6 beta works better than Safari, my Safari with 7 tabs (without flash or java) took 1.2Gb of memory, Firefox with 11 tabs takes only 700Mb of memory

    And no crashing for a beta, it's practically release worthy

    I'm on Chrome. I haven't encountered anything weird bugs.

    Fullscreen is still not the Lion default though but they're working on better Lion integration. Chrome 13 or 14 already has implemented the intermittent scroll bar thing.

    I'm usually a Chrome user but I am back on Safari until I can use the swipe to page on Chrome without having to use a hack...

    works fine after you change swiping to change spaces/desktops to 4 fingers and change swiping to change pages back to 3 fingers like before.

    Shift command f will get out of fullscreen without exitingin the current chrome release.

    Still on Chrome. Fullscreen and swipe aren't deal-breakers for me. I'm used to Chrome, and until Safari gives me a reason to switch, I'll use Chrome.
