It just seems like firefox likes to eat up a lot of memory. I've already done the memory tweak command line in the config file but I was wondering if anyone here usess camino and internet explorer from microsoft.

I have been quite happy with firefox but I want to make sure that I get accustomed to a browser that is the best for the mac platform.

thanks
Safari is my first choice (though it'll be much nicer when they make the next release, judging by the nightly webkit builds) simply for what its zoom button does rather than maximize or enlarge to some arbitrary size. Between those two, I would definitely go with Firefox simply because it's much easier to add new stuff to the configuration (about:config) and it actually has extensions.
