I have heard bad things about HP scanner drivers. We are considering getting a cheap All-in-One like the 5610 or 6210. It looks like they use the HP Scan Pro software... Is the scanning interface some bloated proprietary interface or will it work via TWAIN through GraphicConverter?
Do you have the latest version of Adobe Flash plugin installed?
Is there an easy way to disable/enable the console logs? My logs are filled with garbage like "Unsafe javascript attempt..." "(event hadler) Undefined value" and all kinds of other stuff. It looks like the dashboard widget that I use for RSS is also storing its articles in there too...!
How about Apple fixing some of the real issues that I encounter on a daily basis using 10.4.8 PPC: -Scroll bars disappearing in Finder windows -Finder window placements/size/view etc type not working on burned CD's -Changes to default file handlers not sticking -Safari memory leak

The first thing Apple needs to do is get Safari working fully with Gmail and the other Ajax based services... Apple better not make us pay for Leopard just to get decent Safari compatibility...
The problem with Firefox is that it's not a real Mac app. It doesn't integrate with the OS features that contribute to the Macs ease of use. I use Services extensively when I am browsing, and I also need access to my Keychains for auto-fill as well as needing spell-check. Sure you can replicate some of those features with FF extensions, but they still don't integrate with the OS. Even Camino doesn't have spell-checking and it's Keychain support is based on an older...
As far as I'm concerned, if a site doesn't work on Safari, then it doesn't work on the Mac... Safari is the default browser out of the box. My mom isn't going to be able to switch browsers just to access a specific site...
