    Until I can get Google Toolbar and ad-blocking extensions (a la AdBlock) on Safari, I'll be sticking with Firefox. That's too bad, because apart from those two features, I prefer Safari (version 3, anyway).

    You need a choice for "other". There are a few Camino users here, me included.

    Um, I think you left out a few browsers:



    Camino

    Shiira

    iCab

    OmniWeb

    Netscape

    Sunrise

    Internet Explorer

    Mozilla

    And, of course, the ubiquitous "Other"



    I use OmniWeb.



    If you'd like the results of a more thorough poll, MacOSXhints run a "which browser are you using" poll every so often.

    Yup. It used to come bundled on all new Macs before Safari came out. Can't remember if there was any overlap. The last version was 5.2.3, it is PPC-only and still works under Rosetta on 10.4.10 for Intel.

    That's correct. Stevie made Internet Explorer the default browser for the Mac when he made "piece" with MS. I still have IE, but for all intents and purposes it's useless now. I actually launched it the other day just for kicks and was surprised to see that it no longer renders the most common sites correctly. Try it for kicks, it's funny. Yes, Internet Explore for the Mac is history. Good riddance.

    camino....its the best. But off late i've been having problems with viewing flash sites....installing the adobe flash has solved it though...so my vote is for camino.

    I use OmniWeb.



    Really this poll has so little choice as to be useless.

    Safari just feels like proper Mac program, Firefox and Camino just feel detached.

    Safariblock is decent adblocker for safari, and it works great with safari 3 as well. Also Safaristand is good flash blocker.

    Good list although Mozilla is now SeaMonkey.

    I mainly use Safari, the tight system integration (.mac, keychain,...) and the more mac-like feel keep me from using Firefox for more than checking how my HTML/CSS files render.

    I use Safari but sometimes if I'm ripping a youtube video or something I have to use Firefox to download it directly.
