    Firefox for my everyday browsing. Camino for speed and flash content. Safari never lets me down, if neither of the others don't work.

    If you use ff in windows, there is a thing you can do (i have a guide on it) that speeds it up 4 times mysteriously...

    do you mean from about:config setting

    network.http.pipelining = true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 10

    It seems to work in Windows, Mac, and Linux. Definitely helps in Winodws, seems to boost substantially in Mac, less so in Linux (Slack 10.1). I am not entirely certain if it makes a whole lot of difference or if it is just my expecting it to be faster though.

    EDIT: lowered max requests based upon intelligent comments below. I do not use Firefox enough to get in trouble with it.

    I use Camino 8.2 as my primary browser. I like the clean interface.

    I sometimes use Firefox, mostly for banking. It is nice but I can not seem to figure out how to get middle click to open in a new tab and that drives me nuts. Plus I prefer Camino's interface. I suppose if I used more extensions it would be a different story though.

    Occasionally I use Safari, but this is getting less and less frequent in Panther.

    Holy crap thats a bit excessive ... I would recommend around 20 MAX anymore is just begging for you to be blacklisted for running a DOS attack agaist a small site

    I use firefox because I prefer it tried Safari for a bit and did'nt like it ... plus I really like the 'live bookmarks' in firefox makes RSS feeds super easy to use

    yea,it works on mac too, also known to websites, webservers, and webhosts as flooding a site/server and will get your ip banned from many many sites now that theyre cracking down on it. IOW, dont do it.

    I used to use Firefox, but I get bored with the status quo a lot. I switched to Safari and am very happy with it. Not one thing wrong with Firefox, but like I said, I get bored.

    Heh, I have seen people saying to set it to 200. I have it set at 50 but then again don't use Firefox thus I guess I don't get banned.

    EDIT: I think I'll lower it to 5 just in case I start using Firefox again.

    While Safari is nice, I prefer Firefox for one reason: click-hold on a link options. This is a great way to open links in a new tab (especially with a one button mouse, besides middle wheel click with a wheel mouse doesn't work).

    Firefox, because of the plugins available, and it's easier to switch back and forth between windows and mac (firefox on both).

    I just loaded Camino, it's much faster than FF. I haven't tried the G4-optimized build of Firefox yet, hopefully that will bring the best of both worlds, because Firefox definitely is the slowest browser on my mini.
