I'd switch from Safari if...
Authored by: craigpugsley on Feb 09, '06 09:27:58AM

If Firefox was more Mac-like and supported more of Apple's core OS benefits (spell checking in form fields, Keychain integration instead of the stupid mozilla briefcase), I would leave Safari immediately. Probably.
Problem is, Safari just looks so gaddamn nice. It just has a little more polish than Firefox...
Tricky.

It's it's just looks that are keeping you away, check out the Uno theme for OS X and the GrApple themes for Firefox.

I wish those same things from Firefox but I'm hopelessly addicted to extensions like adblock and mapit. So I'm sticking with Firefox until they get their stuff fixed.

I agree with you. However, the more Mac-like browser is really Camino. It really flies when rendering pages and is much, much quicker in response time than Safari. While Safari is nice, the page rendering is somewhat slow. Try to scroll a page of news at NYTimes.com (while highlighting with the cursor) in both browsers and see the difference.
