I'm digging Safari

I switched over to Safari from Firefox tonight. Discovered that Safari now has extensions and AdBlock is one of 'em. So far, I'm really liking it. Browsing seems to be faster and it has a smaller footprint.

I'm a big fan of Google Chrome personally.

Anything but Internet Exploder.

Switched from IE7 to Safari, and enjoyed the experience -- never mind that it took more memory to operate. But as time went on, there were problems, too much for me to detail (maybe it was viral, I dunno).

Happy as a pig in slop with Chrome.

FF is still more versatile. Yet Safari does have some unique bells and whistles. Esp nice to hear Apple added the Adblock.

Now I'm trying out Opera. It's faster than Safari. Liking it better. Knowing Google's penchant for collecting data on anything and everything, I'm avoiding their browser.

Google chrome here as well. It's nice that you can save bookmarks et al and have them on another computer.

Case in point.

I'll not be browsing with Chrome, either.

Safari's alright but I really disliked the backdoor install from Apple when I did some sort of QuickTime or iTunes update. This has since been rectified. Apple's non-OSX software is usually ported with great mediocrity to other platforms. Firefox is still the most tweakable of browsers without grotesque resource requirements.

I'm on Safari now, since I just got an iMac this week. Love it so far.
