    Alternative Browser?
    Hello all

    I'm a Safari user and I'm not new to Macs by any means, but I find myself growing bored of Safari. Don't get me wrong it runs amazing and never fails me, but I just hate the fact it's totally uncustomizable. That kills me =\ Anyone else use a browser thats just as good or close that has more customization features?

    Thanks!

    Haha well I'm a strange one, it's not like I'm bored of it...it's just I hate not being able to customize it you know? I like customizing my mac from the dock up to the icons. So why not find a browser I could customize also?

    I use Safari, with Firefox as my second. I really like it! Also, Shiira looks really cool.

    The thing that gets to me about Safari is that each time I close it with several tabs open it asks if I really want to do so. When I reopen it, nothing starts except the Homepage.

    With Firefox3, it asks once if I want it to remember the tabs. I say I do and every time after that it starts all of the tabs when it loads.

    Why can't Safari do that?


    BTW - if there is a way to make Safari do that I would be grateful if someone could show me the way please.
