    Why has Apple ruined Safari?
    Since 4.0 Safari has been a nightmare! It is the slowest, most pathetic browser on the market! I much prefer Chrome at this point.

    Don't they see they have a problem???

    While not a giant fan of Safari, my first choices are Opera & FF, I have had no issues with slowdowns on Safari 4 on either of my Macs here.

    There is nothing wrong with preferring another browser either.
    Think I have at least 6 browsers installed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I've had no problems with Safari. I like Chrome a lot more (even when it was in its' dev) but there's nothing wrong with Safari. Maybe if you're having such 'problems' you could try to find a solution or ask for some help with issues instead of needlessly posting a moan thread.

    Ruined? I never knew it to be a solid browser to begin with.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I like Safari a lot. It is a solid browser. I just wish it would use less window chrome - like Google Chrome.

    Aside from the boneheaded switch to a tiny stop/reload button, Safari works fine for me.

    It may not have the extra features of Opera or the add-ons like Firefox, but at least it has a bookmarks manager...unlike Chrome.

    I like chrome, thats what I have been using. Before that I used FF for pretty much everything. In the few instances where chrome wont work for something I typically use FF.

    I've never liked using Safari either. The only thing I like is its integration with OS X. Firefox on OS X, Swiftweasel on Linux!

    Have you done anything to troubleshoot the problem or are you just here to garner more - rep?

    No not really, Quicksilver integrates with it fine for example.

    It has an Adblock like FF and such.

    After using IE all those years, for me, Safari is like being in heaven!

    My Safari is running like lightening, no problems. I was a die hard FF fan, but then I ran into a FF update that caused it to get kind of wonky. That irritated me enough to prompt the switch to Safari, and I've been pleased ever since.
