Firefox & Web Developer
Authored by: atelier26 on Apr 28, '08 12:48:17PM
Since I use Firefox together with the Web Developer extension, the development of web applications become much more easy. Otherwise I love the speed of Safari, but still I gave my vote for Firefox.

However I am sure that, if there would be a similar extension for Safari, like Web Developer for Firefox, than I would go for that pair.

WebKit = Safari. If you use WebKit, you're really using Safari, except it's a version that hasn't been released yet.

Yeah but technically you're not because Safari is the user interface, WebKit is under the hood, close, but different

I didn't include any beta browsers -- for the purposes of this poll, WebKit = Safari, as that's the UI you've chosen to use. (And Firefox 3 = Firefox, etc. for other beta releases).

And yes, the reply above this is correct: WebKit = Safari in terms of UI, but WebKit ≠ Future versions of Safari. WebKit is only "under the hood" improvements, whereas future releases of Safari will include (probably) UI improvements and new features.
