Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 faster on Mac OS X than Safari 3.1

At least on some benchmarks.

Plus Safari on Windows is just poo. There is no reason to not be using Firefox, or Opera if that is your thing.

If you really want to go crazy, Swift: http://try.swift.ws/
Native Windows WebKit based Browser. (Webkit is the thing below Safari that actually renders pages, equivalent to Firefox's Gecko)

In my PC Safari is, by far, much more faster, twice at least.

Faster than what? Firefox? Maybe. Opera? I don't think so.

Swift still has some minor usability problems though, eg. it would be nice if hitting return in the address bar actually did something.
But apart from those...

Fair point. Note that I'm not against Firefox in any way. I still use it most of the time, but I do like Opera quite a bit.

Safari is a neat browser but the Windows version is dreadful. The font and widget rendering make it look terrible in the context of a Windows desktop.

I'd like to use Safari on Windows, but I'm waiting for a version that will work with workgroups.

Apple and MS are in talks of a merger. Then they're going to overthrow the US Gov't and then the world.

IE was only made to download Firefox or Opera, whichever you like better.

I use the built-in Winamp browser.




Ha, no, not really. I'm using FF3b5 right now. But none of the current stable releases can render the Acid3 Test, so they all suck.

Webkit and Opera sure blow FF out of the water, though.

I have too many extensions that offer functionality Opera doesn't, and (spot check for xzxzzx) I still hate the way it handles tabs.

Back in the day, Firefox had some huge memory leaks so I was forced to use Opera almost full time. It took about 2 weeks to get used to but now I don't look back
