I tried Safari 2, and it had problems for what I did ... and since I have owned a Mac before, it reminded me of a browser I used in 8.6, but
something makes me feel it isn't as functional, probably don't remember correctly
I will try it again. I am curious if my WinRoll will work with the new version, as it didn't with the old one. It is a program that simulates the
Mac's very handy tool of 'rolling' up the window to just the title bar with a right click on it. Great for seeing behind your current window
without switching or minimizing. If you haven't used it, it may not sound too great, but I missed it until I found it (from the FlyakiteOSX
package). I can't imagine not having it.
I am using Firefox 3 Beta 5 right now. They are working on 3 RC1. It is performing just fine for me, the only drawback is a lot of the add-ons are
not compatible yet ... I haven't done the intense surfing I used to, only had it since yesterday. I will have to hit some image galleries and see
if it still has the memory leak that requires a restart to clear up (or a program like FreeRAM).
I still prefer Firefox at the moment, simply because of NoScript and AdBlockPlus, and the control it gives ... and all the customization I have
become accustomed to. I only have one bar on top when I don't have a second tab, all the extra stuff just wastes my browsing window
I love being
able to move everything around as I see fit.
I once had two versions of Firefox, Opera, and Safari, but since cleaned them up. Opera didn't impress me too much, though not bad. If someone
showed me ABP and NoScript for the other browser, I would be more likely to use them.
Never IE ... besides Microsoft Update. That is it. Even then it makes me cringe. I know someone who still uses MSN6 browser ... NO TABS!!! I
think I have been using tabs for a decade (Netscape)
I will give Safari a try again, didn't mind the look that much, just crashed too much for me ... I forgot what soured my taste for Opera, despite
some of the great features.
