Mozilla Suite Forever!
Authored by: Paul Burney on Apr 23, '08 07:37:35AM

Well, not really forever. I don't use it on my Intel based macs because it isn't universal binary.

I use it on my G5 towers as my primary browser because it's solid with a good rendering engine, doesn't have weird memory issues, *and* it behaves like a mac application should (up arrow in a text box goes to the beginning of the box, command w closes a window when there aren't any more tabs, etc).

A lot of those little exceptions that the Mozilla team made for the Mac got reverted in Firefox for the sake of cross platform equivalence. :-(

I use Firefox for web development though... Firebug is incredible and the LiveHTTPHeaders, HTML Validator, MeasureIt and ColorZilla extensions are very helpful.

If you use Mozilla, grab the Pinstripe theme. For Firefox, try the GrApple (Eos) or iFox theme. A good theme makes a mozilla product feel like it really belongs on the mac.

I believe Seamonkey is a universal binary, and will have features and security updates to the old Mozilla suite.

Instead of installing all those extensions for web development, have you just looked at the Web Developer Toolbar? It seems like all your extensions could be replaced by this one.
