They've gotta fix Safari in Tiger....it's performance on secure sites is beyond terrible. Firefox may be a bit garish in its appearance, but it runs rings around the spinning beachball king of apps. <br><br>
Probably, unless Apple does something really significant with Safari in "Tiger."<br>You've got the developer's version of "Tiger" don't you?<br><br>I believe more Mac people use Safari than Firefox. <br>I guess they don't want to experiment and find the truth.<br><br><br>
Right Topper<br><br>Like what JD said Safari will never become a major player <-- Safari is Mac only for one thing and that alone will keep Safari out of the Lime Light. However on the Mac community side Safari is the dominate browser, only Power users would use something else but mom & pops and joe smoe average types nope.<br><br>

My biggest beef with Firefox is because of the satellite latency/wireless issues. Sometimes I have to hit reload on a page. On Safari I can just hit the return key and it gets it the second or third time. In Firefox it always wipes out the url so it has to be pasted or typed back in everytime. When you have a day that it is giving you problems that gets old real fast. That is probably single most feature for not switching. That and no simple one click x to shut the tabs. <br><br>

The thing I find curious is that for a while Rick had to use Firefox to get on eBay and a few secure sites like that. I find him using it more and more even though he is kind of a technophobe and doesn't always welcome change. He never uses tabbed browsing or even the scroll wheel on the mouse. I should note as far as speed difference I cannot tell of one. They seem to be the same.<br><br>
