I'm always a little surprised to see people say they use Firefox because Safari is slow. My experience has always been the opposite. I don't know much about the rendering speed or any of that, but every build I've used of Firefox (at least a dozen, official and nightlies) has been horrible at what I would think are simple things, like page scrolling, or switching between tabs when I have more than a few open. I think maybe it would be nice if they just gave up on Firefox on OS X and gave the Camino guys some help. I really like Camino, but it just needs something to push it past Safari.

The only complaints I have about Safari are appearance issues. I don't really mind the metal look, but I don't care for the black and white toolbar buttons. But still, out of all the browsers I've tried, Safari is the one I always end up using. Not perfect (I'd like optional OmniWeb-style tabs and a less dull and gray interface) but the best of whats available, at least for me.

I never heard of Safari Masks, but I have used Safaricon before, and it is an improvement, even though I'm not really crazy about any of the themes available. Only problem is, it just plain doesn't work for me on Safari 2.0.

I hate to say it, but the Opera 8 screenshots look awesome. I mean, besides the tabs being in the wrong place. Maybe I'll give that another try, the last time I checked it out was on Linux around 5 years ago.
