I used FireFox on the PC for months, then switched to Safari when I got the Mac and haven't looked back yet. It does all the same stuff but feels faster and more natural on the Mac (on which FireFox takes *forever* to load in comparison to the PC or Safari)

I do miss the easy way you can wipe all cache, history, cookies, and other private stuff in FireFox though.

Plenty of room for personal choice. Pick one of (Camino, Firefox, Safari) and you'll be happy.

Pick another of (Internet Explorer, Netscape 7.1) as a backup for badly-coded sites that insist you use one of those two. (Or fake it )

Use the "Reset Safari" command in the Safari application menu.

You might want to give Shiira a shot. It's a new web browser from Japan, and its actual goal was to be a superior alternative to Safari. I use it sometimes, and it's pretty good.

Ahh, that simple, I'm still so used to digging deep from Windows and Linux that I forget to look in the obvious places... thanks

Macs are always so bloody obvious! I spent about 1 hour looking for Add/Remove programs feature, when all I had to do was just put it in the Bin. Do that in Windows and you are bascily commiting Application Suicide.

I primarily use Safari but I have Firefox as a backup because Safari occasionally has java issues.

I switch on and off between Safari and Camino. I prefer Camino to Firefox since Camino has a much more "Mac-like" feel to it than Firefox.
