    Specs:
    24"iMac, 15"MB-Pro, MacBook, G4 iMac, PM G5 2x2Ghz, G4 iBook & Some PCs
    Safari, Nutscrape (or whateverilla) or Incipent Engorger?

    Which browser do you use and why?

    I have switched to Safari for all but the most annoying sites (what the hell does "Java - level too deep" mean anyhow?).

    I haven't tried the Nutscrape flavours on Mac yet but my experience with them on Windross hasn't been a bed of roses, I do use it on Linux otoh.

    IE has already crapped out on me several times on the Mac and I've only had it a week! At least, unlike with Windross, it doesn't take the entire OS with it, and yes I've even had this happen under XP!

    Has anyone had any really bad experiences with Safari yet?

    I use Safari for everything. I love it! The newest version v73 seems to have fixed all the site issues I had been having except for the www.papajohns.com website which I can't log into so I still use IE for that. IE on the Mac I haven't had any problems with except it's slow. I hate AOL more than any other company on the face of the earth (well except maybe SBC), so I will NEVER use Netscape and besides the fact I hate AOL, I was working for MS during the time the browser war was raging so I'm a little loyal (yes, bad I know ). I tried Mozilla but I thought it was hideously ugly so I deleted it almost immediately. I've never needed to download Chimera/Camino since Safari works so well for me.

    I still waver between Camino and Safari. I'll probably make the full switch to Safari once it hits 1.0 (and enables one to disable antialiasing of fonts&#33.
