Most people switch to camino or firefox.

I actually like Safari better except for the fact that it doesn't do tabbed browsing. It also seems more stable than any of the mozilla offshoots I've seen, plus it has a considerably smaller memory footprint.

Safari does support tabbed browsing. Open the Safari preferences, go to the tab section, and enable it.

My vote is for Camino though.

I'm sticking to firefox for the time being.

I like the fact that camino was done for MacOS and integrates better, but has no extensions and themes that firefox does.

Unless firefox's extensions work in camino...........

No they do not. Camino has a few tweaks and can use mouse gestures from a cocoa add on app (from what I understand, I don't use gestures). Camino is Cocoa based whereas FF is XUL based, which makes interoperability of extensions/themes pretty much impossible.

You could take a look at Shiira too. Nice little browser, can pick up all Safari bookmarks, other toolbar icons available etc.
I still much prefer Safari but it's good to have another option. I'd never consider IE as an option :)
Use FireFox on the XP box 100% of the time but wasn't totally happy with it on Mac.

Believe it or not, but I actually prefer Safari. But, whenever a site gives me any headaches in Safari I use Camino.
