Browsers rated for me.

I made a table recently, and the outcome is that Opera was very nice, but had no keychain integration and REFUSED to send any RSS feed to my default registered application. Then Camino has at least SOME keychain integration... it stores password but not certificates... I mean, WTF!? I also got annoyed with Camino constantly wanteing to update my site password even though I was not changing my password on the page I was on. Nothing works as well as Opera for mouse gestures, Firefox has plugins to (almost) remedy all inadequacies at the cost of performance. Safari is lean for exactly that reason as well and integrates nicely with KeyChain (wouldn't you know it!?) In the end of using Flock, Firefox 2, Firefox 3, Safari, Camino I have to rate them: With Firefox 2 (and 3)(although it still glaringly lacks Keychain support) is still the best choice for me. I'll switch to Firefox 3 once they sort out the tab saving problem.
