GOT YOU slagterd, i am a someone knew Mac user. i built my PCs for years, anyways.... I use Safari it has a google search at the top left, private browsing, bookmarks bar is great, and the tabs work great. I can load any page just as fast as any other browser. and you do not have to install it because it comes with it. You can use the mac mail, and route it through any mail account, gmail, yahoo, or whatever. You can export favorites with Safire and you can import all your contacts from your google account and such. you should be able to load both into the mac mail app, both .pst and gmail, no problem. it asks ou on start up.

hope that made since.
QUOTE Thanks
