Safari's great and all...

and I voted for it, as I use it the most. But I have high hopes for Shiira and Sunrise Browser. If they were a bit more feature rich, I'd switch right now.

The one thing Safari has over many other browsers is that is is pretty clean and simply laid out. Also the integrated RSS reader is exactly what I need - no more and no less than necessary. I think many of the other browsers try to be all things to all people and it ends up becoming less useful.

I cannot agree with this comment more. Safari is clean and has just what you need to get the job done.

I have yet to find a plug-in for Firefox that was little more than a curiosity. Firefox is great for Windows and Linux (where app consistency is pretty irrelevant a concern), but for OS X, Firefox just sticks out like a sore thumb.

Only problems I have with Safari are it tends to memory leak a bit (I just restart it to fix that), and it doesn't confirm closing (so you could have twenty tabs open and accidentally hit Apple+Q instead of Apple+W and they would all close). Apart from those, its a solid browser.

OK, but on my box I cannot view videos -- I do have QT 7.1.6 and have installed Fkip4MacWMV. Also when opening several windows it slows down considerably. Finally some pages (viewable with other browsers) are just blank!

My setup: 20' iMac Intel Core 2 Duo, 500GB HD, 3GB RAM, latest Safari/Firefox/Camino/Opera/Shiira
