Hey I'm switching to a Mac and was just curious as to what browsers most of you use as default. I currently use Firefox on my PC, but I'll probab try out the others once my Mac gets here!

Hi there. This topic has been covered quite extensively already on our forums.
Here are just a small sampling of those threads:

Best Browser

Firefox vs. Safari vs. Opera

Web Browser Recommendations.

Safari vs. Firefox

Browser Comparison


I know you probably have lots more questions, so I would suggest using the Search Fuction to find what you are looking for. Pretty much any question that you could possibly imagine has been answered here already, so take a look around.:black:

Right now I use Safari, but I usually use a nightly build of Shiira. Shiira is great because its as fast a FireFox and Camino but has more features and takes it all with ColorSync™ support.

I use Safari in Tiger 95 or more percent of the time. Only use Opera, Firefox and Camino for testing sites or for a few problem sites.

I've been using Safari since I've owned a Mac.. The only things I wish it'd have, is the ability to have tabs at the bottom compared to the top, and a session saver (if any one knows of a plugin that can make Safari have a session saver, I'd praise you)... This poll got me into Camino (using it right now).. I like its look. Reminds me if Mail.. Very minimalistic and simple. I think it may replace Safari..

I use Safari 98% of the time, and firefox the other 2% of the time. Both broswers are quite good, and they'll smoke IE any day!
