    Firefox. used it mainly when I was a Windows user, so it's only the natural continuation. Safari lack an home button, and it's pretty much the only reason I don't like it.

    You know you can add a home button to the tool bar in safari it's customizable.

    Just go to View, then Customize Tool Bar, then drag the home button where you want it in Safari.

    In terms of stability and security, are they both the same? I read on wikipedia that Firefox uses less memory then Safari.

    I like everything about Safari EXCEPT: the "awesome" bar of firefox is far superior.

    I would definitely use FF if it supported three finger swipes (god I love it!)

    I started right off the bat installing Firefox. But it couldn't load the Apple Quicktime ads and some other QT sites even after reinstalling the plugin. So I uninstalled and used Pimp my Safari to get some functionality (like ad-blocking) into Safari.

    Happy with Safari now.

    Yeah, to an extent.. because then you have people making all these ugly Firefox themes and people actually use them! :eek:

    But anyways, I don't like Firefox. I only use it when I have to (ie. Rogers website doesn't support Safari when checking my bill :mad:), I find it too bulky.

    I'll stick to Safari because it's neat, simple and quick to boot up. :)
