    Default Old Girlfriends - Some are good at certain things - Browser Wars

    I use mostly Safari these days - & one of the major reasons is that I can read PDF files within Safari which happens to suit my tedious operational needs. Never-the -l ess I am somewhat unsatisfied - whenever I go back to my old girlfriend - Camino - she always seems to understand what I want better than the ever so sweet Safari, but she ( Camino) refuses to do PDF's.. I always get lost when Browser issues get discussed - because I do not understand what its all about - Safari is solid but unexciting - but to some of you out there she is the only girl in town! To me Camino seems magical even if she cannot PDF.

    Safari just works. Unexciting it may be, but I like the fact that it works. I still use Omniweb from time to time, but I sometimes think it is overburdened with too many features (hence why I have not switched to Flock either).

    On a side note, you know if you are a geek if you spend time admiring how clean the back of that TiBook is rather than admiring what is holding the TiBook

    I left Firefox with all the customisable addons, to use Safari, purely for the inline PDF display. I read so many PDFs online, it was a pain to download them, read them, and delete them. Safari saved time on the last part, and allows me to just save the ones I want to keep.

    The Firefox add-on I miss most is the del.icio.us one.

    Opera.

    Mouse gestures + speed dial. The perfect aid for the lazy geek.

    WebKit renders best, so no matter what I use, it has to be based on WebKit.

    <continues browser war>

    If you need a bazillion addons then go Firefox,

    if you want a smooth osx integrated user experience for the other 90% of the time, go Safari + inquisitor - Superior bookmark handling, Superior tab management and Superior contextual menu options (for 90% of your needs)
