Camino - Safari - Firefox...
Authored by: UberFu on Feb 14, '06 09:44:34PM

Honestly - I still like the features that were native to IE5 - but it has gotten waay outdated and they totally killed support for it last week and haven't put out any security fixes in years_ As much as I do hate M$ - IE5 - Mac Edition was completely stable and pulled me totally away from Netscape at the time_

These days I bounce around between Safari - it has good and bad points and still has a lot of catching up to the stability and esae of use the MacBU at M$ threw into the lfinal version of IE5 >> Camino and Firefox - same thing_ They both have many good things and many bad things about them just like Safari_ All three are still rather unstable - I have Firefox and Safari crash on me more than Camino_ Several sites I goto have issues with Safari so I'll jump to Firefox_ But then I need several windows of info opened at once and Firefox forces the Tabs option on the Apple-Click function when I actually need seperate windows [since Safari and Camino have the option to alter this] I then jump to Camino for other things 'cause Firefox won't display certain pages/ code accurately_ Yes I know I can Control-Click the item in Firefox to select the open item in a new window function but that does slow things down - especially during website development and testing - when i have to dig thru 50 or 60 pages at a given time_

So I put up with bouncing from Camino to Safari to Firefox and back again - only 'cause they are the lesser of the evils available right now_

Don't like Shiira or OmniWeb or Opera - Netscape 7.x sucks_ And I've played w/ver8 for Win and am Not looking forward to the potential relase for the Mac ver_ Not very promising_

Just like M$ did with HOTMAIL after they acquired them - AOL has done to Netscape - just completely turned the product to crap_

And Mozilla is just too rudimentary for my taste_ I've been wanting to play with Flock - just haven't pulled a copy down yet_
