Have to say Firefox 3.6.3 is rock solid on Leopard and Safari is not up to scratch.

Used to be a Firefox user for a long time, but have switched over to Chrome now and really enjoying it..any of the page loading issues can usually be resolved with a reload..

You should use the two stickies at the head of this Apps & Games section to gauge the opinions about browsers from over 1000 contributors. Just skim the last two pages of each, as they'll relate to the latest versions.

Been happy with Safari to date. FF and iCab are both pretty nice too. Haven't messed with Chrome nor do I plan to.

Chrome on Snow Leopard, especially now it's not beta. Safari on my Powerbook with Leopard because I just don't like Firefox, but Safari does hang a lot.

Chrome has some VERY SERIOUS privacy issues that apparently not a lot of people are aware of.

Firefox is nice, but Safari works great for me.

Safari does everything I ask of it.

So, what's the best automobile?
...laptop, desktop or iPad?
...color for a bouquet of roses?

It's all personal preference!

Yaaaaaay! Someone else who's used iCab. That was my browser of choice until I met OS X, when I 'converted' to FFox. Then found that too darned hungry on limited processing power, so changed to Camino. Safari - ho hum!
