RSS and General Feel
Authored by: bedouin on Mar 30, '07 10:15:27PM

For the record, I prefer the Gecko engine over KHTML, and have generally found it to be more compatible, though I can't remember the last time Safari has given me a problem.

That said, Firefox in OS X feels wrong to me. It doesn't feel like an OS X app; go through the preferences menu to see what I mean. Its built-in RSS is clumsy and not even comparable to Safari's. I've looked at external RSS readers to use in conjunction with Firefox or Camino, but none feel as intuitive to me as Safari's own. I'm sold on it.

Camino is nice, but suffers from not having built-in RSS, in addition to an irregular update schedule. Even if I could make the switch, I don't know how I'd feel about the browser's stagnate development.

As for the others, I've downloaded them for examination once or twice but none appealed to me. So far Safari is the winner.

But isn't it nice to have choices? In Windows you're either using IE or Firefox (as serious contenders); in OS X the choices are much wider, and have been for a long time.
