I switch browsers regularly, but it's Safari now
Authored by: dille on Apr 23, '08 11:13:36AM

I really like where FF3 is going, but like others noted, it's not stable enough to use it as my primary browser. I absolutely LOVE a lot of things in Opera, but it lacks severely in the OS integration department. So Safari it is, and I must say that 3 was a big improvement -- faster, more stable, gets the job done.

I'm not considering other clients, although I briefly flirted with Shiira.

If I'm not on a Mac it's Firefox or Opera.

Which is really faster

Firefox is my main browser for one reason: speed. Yes, Safari renders a page faster, but with Firefox, I can block ads and scripts through addons. The real world experience is much better with these features.

Yes, I miss some of the autofill and spotlight integration in Safari, but its not enough to pull me away from the security and personalization of Firefox.

You can block ads and scripts with Safari add-ons too, so what's the difference...?

You need a plugin to block scripts? What scripts are you talking about?
