Safari, Nutscrape (or whateverilla) or Incipent Engorger?

Which browser do you use and why?

I have switched to Safari for all but the most annoying sites (what the hell does "Java - level too deep" mean anyhow?).

I haven't tried the Nutscrape flavours on Mac yet but my experience with them on Windross hasn't been a bed of roses, I do use it on Linux otoh.

IE has already crapped out on me several times on the Mac and I've only had it a week! At least, unlike with Windross, it doesn't take the entire OS with it, and yes I've even had this happen under XP!

Has anyone had any really bad experiences with Safari yet?

I use Safari for everything. I love it! The newest version v73 seems to have fixed all the site issues I had been having except for the www.papajohns.com website which I can't log into so I still use IE for that. IE on the Mac I haven't had any problems with except it's slow. I hate AOL more than any other company on the face of the earth (well except maybe SBC), so I will NEVER use Netscape and besides the fact I hate AOL, I was working for MS during the time the browser war was raging so I'm a little loyal (yes, bad I know ). I tried Mozilla but I thought it was hideously ugly so I deleted it almost immediately. I've never needed to download Chimera/Camino since Safari works so well for me.

I still waver between Camino and Safari. I'll probably make the full switch to Safari once it hits 1.0 (and enables one to disable antialiasing of fonts!).

Work mainly with safari on my powerbook, but on my thinkpad I use netscape.
