Firefox, ever since 1.5
Authored by: octo on Feb 10, '06 07:17:42AM

Firefox 1.0 had some annoying issues on the Mac, such as freezing easily, not integrating very well, not supporting the middle mouse button, etc. As such, I switched back to Safari when MacOS 10.4 came out. However, Firefox 1.5 fixed all these problems. Now I use Firefox 1.5 on just about every platform I compute on (MacOS, Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, occasionally Windows).

My #1 problem with Safari is probably its lack of configurability. Like most Apple software, it assumes you want to do everything the way its defaults were set up, and that you're too dumb or complacent to care about anything else. (heck, if it weren't for Spotlight/AddressBook integration, I probably wouldn't still be using Mail.app either) I often wish Apple provided a magic "enable advanced user mode" option in their software.
