    I have Firefox and Chrome downloaded as well as Safari, since this is a multi-user computer. Lately I've been using Firefox, but I also like Safari.

    Is Safari the best browser for the Mac?
    I've been using Safari for a very long time and I found no fault with it whatsoever; other than the odd tome it needed to be restarted.
    Recently I saw a link for the new Firefox and decided to give that a go. I used Firefox extensively when I was using a PC.
    When I installed it and ran it, I looked at the Activity Monitor to see which is using more resources.
    Over here both browsers are running with 2 tabs and are playing a long youtube video. It seems to me that Safari is using more memory with PIDs 4101, 6135, 6138 using a total of 861.9MB of real memory.
    Whereas Firefox is using PIDs 6814,6816 using a total of 384MB of real memory…

    This made me ask... what does this mean? Is Safari really the best browser for my mac?
    I've had no real issues with it, but will Firefox be a better choice for something that uses less system resources?

    Anyone neurotic enough to use:

    Apparently they don't track your usage, like other web browsers do.

    I used to laugh at Chrome because I thought it looked terrible but they've came a long way. I actually use it daily now.

    Chrome for me, I just like the way it has everything there for me on any pc when I log in. Im sure safari does this too but I prefer chrome.

    There's a new version of Opera available for download which seems to help speed it up a bit. Otherwise, I much prefer Chrome for speed and ease of use. I'm not a Firefox fan and try to avoid it except when using Linux.

    I'm using Chrome.

    I actually want to give Safari a go, but I have an Android phone, and I use Chrome on that one as well. Having my bookmarks synced between them, being able to continue what I am doing on phone in the computer (open tabs sync) etc. makes me feel like I won't be using Safari.

    However, I read that Mavericks will come with a faster and resource-efficient Safari, so I am tempted to use it.

    Do you guys know a way of syncing my Android browser and Safari? That's pretty much why I am still using Chrome.

    Can't install Firefox 30
    I just tried to download Firefox 30 and install it. But when trying to mount the .dmg file, it says "no mountable file systems". I thought there might be something wrong with the file so I tried to download another one from the site. Same message.

    Any ideas?

    That message appears when the dmg is corrupt or incomplete. Download it again and try. I have Firefox and Safari running but I use Safari more now that I can install AdBlock and other plugins.

    I see this is an old post but here goes. I use Safari 90% of the time on my MBP (2012 model). Works well. Does everything I want. Nothing wrong with Chrome or Firefox. But I think I'll stick with Safari.

    Are you Safari because Chrome is a data-mining tool, and Safari… isn't.

    I do keep a copy of Firefox around and updated, but I find i am using it less and less often. Nothing wrong with it, just Safari does the job very well and there seems to be less occasion where something doesn't work in Safari and I need Firefox.

    I should add that I'm not particularly crazy about the frequency of Firefox updates. I update it more often then I open it.

    I have both Opera and Safari on my Mac, and I often use safari, but there are times that safari cannot load online applications, so I turn to Opera, and it works.
