    I like safari because it's just a web browser...... I'm so tired of all these applications trying to do it all...

    I've only used Safari and Firefox though.

    I use safari for 99.9% of my web browing and I use Camino for IE oriented sites that Safari disagrees with.

    I am a recent switcher so this thread is really interesting to me. As already mentioned - the browsers available to mac users is an important aspect to consider when 'switching'.

    As an ex Windows user - I used Firefox - although I 'contracted' the dreaded ...'can't find server' bug. I originally used Safari when my new imac arrived [which I liked] but tried Firefox out of an old curiousity. I don't like it - I know it has extensions and themes - but I felt like I was still using Windows - horrible.

    I then tried Omniweb - which I liked but a bit too 'candy' for me. Now I mostly ue Camino. fast, stable and not 'Windows-like'.

    I probably would prefer to stick to Safari but it is a little slow compared to Camino.

    On windows I use Firefox. Don't own a mac *yet* but will probably use Camino/Safari when I do.

    I've not yet found any reason not to use Safari all the time. The only site I've had problems with is, for sending large email attachments, but this doesn't work in IE on the Mac either.

    I use Firefox mainly because it's the only browser that works really well on my college's ethernet conncetion.

    Also, Firefox is sooo pretty and I like the search bar that uses multiple search engines.

    I have to come out of the closet now as a Camino convert. Safari's memory leaks were beginning to irritate me, so I switched to Camino's optimized builds (

    Camino is slightly speedier than Safari (but not quite to the level of Firefox) and it has better cookie handling than Safari as well. I like it.

    Browser use
    Recently got a G5 iMac and now Safari can get to almost all sites. (I use to use Explorer as a last resort, but no more) I surf a lot and like art. The browser type I use depends on what I want to do with the file(have a dial up) so I tend to save stuff. Here is what I have found:
    Browser STORAGE characteristics:

    FireFox using cut/paste results in a plain txt document. Saves all data infolders.
    iCab using cut/paste results in a rich text RTF document. Saves with a good Archive
    Safari using cut/paste results in a rich text RTFD document. Saves text only.
    1. Does anyone else use iCab?
    2. Now that I found that I can cut/paste to TextEdit Safari is much more useful.

    use safari because of its integration - i like the way that when I'm away I can access my safari bookmarks (ok, this is more to do with .mac, but as it doesnt work with any other browser...)

    its even little things such as when i'm chatting to friends via MSN (using AdiumX) I can just click on a little button and send them a link to the page i'm currently viewing in Safari.

    On the odd occasion that safari doesnt work i either tell safari to lie and pretend to be IE (using the Debug menu) or use Camino.

    For 95% of users, Safari is the best option. This is because it is OS intergrated. You will notice that it is faster than all the other browsers out there.

    For those of us that routinely use multiple operating systems, something portable is usually easier. I don't find Safari to be faster but I build my own firefox with code and compiler optimizations.

    You also get the ability to use extensions with
    Firefox and the best part is that you can build it
    yourself and make changes to the browser yourself.

    I use Safari, FireFox and Camino, but have problems with ALL

    Safari - Only Browswer that allows me to play Pacific Poker (I am addicted, it works kinda on FireFox, but noto n Camino). But recently I have been having crashes with it.

    FireFox - worked fine for everything except it was SO bloody slow

    Camino - Love it, but it crashes on me ALL the time... going to try and find another build (using 1.0a1).

    Anyone else experiencing crashes/freezes with Camino and Tiger?

    I have a 1.5 GHZ, 1.5 GIG RAM G4 Powerbook.

    /edit another thing I miss while going from Safari to Camino is pressing "apple 1,2,3" for bookmarks 1,2 or 3... anyway to get this on camino?
