There's a new version of Opera available for download which seems to help speed it up a bit. Otherwise, I much prefer Chrome for speed and ease of use. I'm not a Firefox fan and try to avoid it except when using Linux.

I'm using Chrome.

I actually want to give Safari a go, but I have an Android phone, and I use Chrome on that one as well. Having my bookmarks synced between them, being able to continue what I am doing on phone in the computer (open tabs sync) etc. makes me feel like I won't be using Safari.

However, I read that Mavericks will come with a faster and resource-efficient Safari, so I am tempted to use it.

Do you guys know a way of syncing my Android browser and Safari? That's pretty much why I am still using Chrome.

I just tried to download Firefox 30 and install it. But when trying to mount the .dmg file, it says "no mountable file systems". I thought there might be something wrong with the file so I tried to download another one from the site. Same message.

Any ideas?

That message appears when the dmg is corrupt or incomplete. Download it again and try. I have Firefox and Safari running but I use Safari more now that I can install AdBlock and other plugins.

I see this is an old post but here goes. I use Safari 90% of the time on my MBP (2012 model). Works well. Does everything I want. Nothing wrong with Chrome or Firefox. But I think I'll stick with Safari.
