    Default Has Anyone Tried The Safari Web Browser?

    Downloaded it today. First impressions? Far more practical and user friendly than I'd expected. There are a few annoying things (you must press enter to go to a new site as there is no "go to" button, the browser refuses to store passwords), yet the device works relatively well. There are no new additions for the sake of expediency, nor are instructional aids worded in an unnecessary "hip" jargon (Hello, Google Chrome).

    I'm still experimenting with it as of now. Yet with all of the problems I (and apparently several other folks) have been encountering with Firefox 3 as of late, it is a viable alternative. Overall, I still like using FF the best, yet the bugs and the utter lack of concern offered by the outfit in repairing them has left me looking for a replacement.

    I have no FF 3.0 bugs currently except for some photo uploading incompatibility.

    And yeah, Safari sucks. I tried a demo version of it with an iTunes update. Pass.

    I use it and have no complaints. I have a Powerbook G4 and have also tried Firefox but prefer Safari. My wife on the other hand, has tried Safari but prefers Firefox on her Macbook, so go figure.

    Have a macbook and love safari. The only glitch I have found is that you cannot access MSN hotmail with the apple safari browser. Coincidence or MSN sabotage???

    I've used Safari on two different Macs, but prefer Firefox. It's a decent browser, though.

    I've used Safari rarely on my Macbook, but don't really like it. Always use Firefox.

    Actually, Safari is the only web browser I have found that actually renders type and web programming correctly. Firefox 2 was pretty good, but 3 has a bunch of glitches when it comes to reading HTML and CSS. If there are any nerds out there who care.

    I've had it since I downloaded iTunes over a year ago, but just now am trying it out. So far, I'm still getting used to it, but it seems fairly quick.

    +1 on the Mac/Safari combo. Used it for years. FF is ok, but more people
    use Safari, so it makes more sense when you're previewing HTML and such.
    I think I'm just accustomed to it. Although, by far, most people use IE. But I fucking hate IE.
    And not sure about the password thing, Chef. I think that's
    just a preference setting in your OS. Don't most pw linked sites have
    a "remember" dialogue...?
