safari vs Chrome browser
 
is the any different about those two?
I am a safari user and I very happy about it never have problem. However, Today I discover that when I go to safari web to attempt to buy stuff from UK website called Latest DVDs, Blu-ray Movies, PS3, Nintendo, Xbox Games & Music - Free delivery | Zavvi.com. in the delivery section, I can not find Australia. My friend suggested me to try chrome. I though it make no different. But it surprise me that when i tried chrome browser the dropbox of destination cover Australia. It change my thought completely that how good safari compare to chrome browser. Can anyone explain how can this happen?

Stuff happens and it's always nice to have a back up browser just in case. Depends on the website as they don't always support xxx browser.

I have Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. I hear good things about Opera as well.

I like Firefox. Been using it for years since I usually play on my pc and I refuse to use IE. Plus, great add-ons make my life easier and ad free! :Cool:

Google scares me with all their sniffing and such, although I am about to get an Android smartphone. :o

And I've never cared much for Safari so I keep using Firefox on the Mac too.

That's actually impossible.

I agree that having multiple browsers is a good idea given that as the OP has seen, some browsers don't seem to like certain pages. This problem is becoming less of an issue though and I'd suggest that IE not having 95% of the market anymore is a big cause of that.

You couldn't be all that scared of Google. ;)

Heh. I guess at this point I'm still just ignorant enough to go ahead... yet informed enough to know I should be nervous. ;)

I'm hoping that the devs have tricks up their sleeves to make the phones secure.

I run Safari 90% of the time but have Firefox for some plugins/addons. Both these have Flash removed/disabled.

I have Chrome, which has Flash built-in, for those Flash-unavoidable times.

And I agree entirely.... no way they can 'crash each other'

If you're concerned about privacy, there is no way in heck I'd pick up an Android phone. At any price.
