I can't see what people don't like about Safari. It works with almost every site I go to (including my online banking), and it seems faster and less clunky than FireFox on my PowerBook, and I love the Bookmark organization.<br><br>Seriously, what's the problem with Safari?<br><br><br>

I've noticed it's been crashing more frequently in Panther on my G5 at work, but no such problems at home on the old G4...<br><br>I'd be curious to see the laundry list as well...no real problems with Safari and the sites I visit save for maybe one or two- and one of those doesn't want to function with ANY Mac browser...<br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>

Well I can't give you a "laundry list" 'cause that would require that I actually use it for an extended period of time and I don't plan on doing that.<br>But here is a short list:<br><br>- I don't want a browser that works with "almost" every site. I have found several sites it doesn't work properly with, including mission-critical sites we use in the workplace.<br><br>- No password manager. The keychain just doesn't cut it for browsers and multiple users.<br><br>- No extension architecture. I'm aware that there are addons of sorts. PITA to use. No Flash blocker. Can't selectively remove items from a page. Can't reorder tabs. <br><br>At the Office Safari is a huge waste of time. We need to connect to secure offsite servers and we need our browser to be seamless, without unecessary warnings and additional pointless mouse clicks, and Safari just isn't it. In fact, the only two browsers we have found that meet our needs are Mozilla and Firefox. These days we mostly use Firefox because it's extensions, ease of use, look and feel, speed, and security.<br><br>As a Bobby-Basic browser I suppose Safari is just fine. It doesn't cut it for me though, either at home and especially at work.<br><br><br>

I'm in the same boat as you hayesk- Safari does just about everything *I* need it to, and anything it doesn't winds up being a platform problem rather than a browser issue.<br><br>Firefox is great on a PC, but for me it just feels kinda clunky- hard to explain....<br><br>Sort of why people get wrapped up in themes and which ones 'feel' right to work in as opposed to others. It's an intangible matter (for me personally)...<br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
The crashing is a feature of 10.3.8. <br><br>Seriously, I've had as many unexpected Safari quits in the latest OS as I have in all previous updates combined, and the spinning beach ball has gone from negligible to persistent.<br><br>
