    A mix between Safari and Opera. But mostly Opera. Hands down THE best browser!

    Specs:
    MacBook 6.1 (2009), Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, Snow Leopard 10.6.6
    Chrome. Fast, simple.

    Safari is good too and I use it once and a while but mostly Chrome.

    Firefox mostly, though it tends to get slow, and for video it's terrible. Lag every 2 seconds EVEN IF THE VIDEO IS FULLY LOADED.

    So for video I use Opera, or Safari.

    I mostly like Firefox for its ability to recover every tab....wait...can't all browsers do that now?

    Firefox - I have used it since my Windows days, and since it was a 0.3 release back in the Firebird days.

    For me it's the most stable, has the best functionality (ad-block actually works without downloading ads for example) and the nano-second speed gains you get from Safari or Chrome for me don't justify the switch.

    I quite like Safari, but every now and again it will do something I don't like and I fond myself back on Firefox.

    Well the video lagging is partly true, however that only happens when I have 5 or more programs running, and when I haven't restarted my MB in 5+ months.

    Used to be an FF user for the longest time but just switched to opera yesterday and must say, after importing bookmarks and passwords etc. I am pleasantly surprised. I think I'm staying permanently. One thing I noticed though, google images load the old way, is there a way to switch back?

    Ever since I switched to Mac - all of a couple of weeks ago - I've primarily used Safari. I had to switch to Chrome for some activities because Safari doesn't support selective pop-up blocking. Im anti-Firefox - but just downloaded the latest beta since a reference manager program I want to use - only works with Firefox. Unless I'm blown away by the speed and memory management of the new FF, I'll be dividing my time strictly between Safari and Chrome.

    I went from being a long time safari user to firefox. Had problems with safari with watching videos (java enabled) to still getting pop-ups even though the box for"block pop-ups" is checked.

    Fixed the problem by going 32bit. Now I'm back to using Safari again .

    I mainly use Chrome, but I also enjoy behaving like a browser hipster and using obscure apps like Shiira or Turboweb.

    I've gone back to Safari from Chrome. The latest releases of Chrome seem slower and more bloated. Not to mention, I really don't like Google's anti H.264 attitude.

    Pretty excited for the new Safari, but right now I'm mainly a Chrome user. I did use Safari, but once you get used to the Omnibar it's hard to go back.

    That said, Safari is (in general) much better-looking, so once it gets a speed boost I might switch back to it.

    I actually find the current version of Safari is faster and responsive on my Mac than the latest Chrome beta I was using.
