While I would love to say OmniWeb, and there are still some things that really rock about OmniWeb, it is currently too sluggish and buggy under Tiger. So now, I am using Safari with Saft (and I was using PithHelmet but Safari kept crashing, so I'll use it again after another update). Even with this excellent combination there are some things I miss that are in OmniWeb:

thumbnail tabs
workspaces (which can sort of be done with tab groups, but it's not the same)
the way you can tell it to open all RSS articles from a feed in tabs

the other key features I want are implemented by Saft:

drag-and-drop tabs
save open windows when you quit.

It's a close race.

I hear you, man. I'm still using OW for my primary browser, but I find that I'm loading Safari more and more when I just want to load one quick webpage or two.

Here's to hoping 5.2 or 6 are zippier under Tiger....

Oh yes - you are absolutely right. I love Omniweb's workspaces feature, but even though Safari isnt remembering my tabs, Im using it more and more nowadays.

Don't get me started on what all this browser flipping means for bookmark 'management'....
