Hi Guys!

switcher for about two weeks now. I bought the Andy Ihnatko book on 10.4. Freakin love it . . . not only does he cover a CRAP load (I am already helping tweak my mac friends who have had their boxes for YEARS and I swapped from Windows less then 2 weeks ago! I rarely laugh out loud at COMPUTER manuals ... ok who am I kidding I do all the time)

I am on the chapter about Keychain now, and I was wondering. Because I am an AVID firefox fan (not that I have anything against safari, I am just used to the finctionality of firefox and it's extensions make it ALL worth it to me) but if I am using firefox, are THOSE passwords going into my Keychain? Or does that only happen with Safari? Just a questions that popped into my head!

Thanks alot!

Mark

Firefox doesn't use the keychain, it uses its own password management system (AFAIK).

Camino on the other hand does use the keychain.

If you want to sync your firefox information across multiple machines, check out google's browsersync extension. http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/browsersync/

If you like FF on Windows, I'd think you'd love Camino; it has practically the same functionality. I, too, just switched.

Is there a reason you like Camino more then FF? I have to admit, I found Safari pretty clunky compared to FF, but I also missed all my add ons that I had on my old box.

Here's my reasons for preferring Camino:

It feels more Mac-like than Firefox, uses the normal OS X interface widgets and integrates with the address book, keychain etc.

Performance is also better.

Aptmunich, agreed completely. Those are my exact reasons why I prefer Camino over FireFox on OSX. I don't feel Safari is clunky at all and use it most of the time, but Camino is one nice browser and so integrated into OSX.

I would prefer the sidebar bookmark browsing on FF...I dont find Safari and Camino have this specific feature so I stay with FF for now.
