Thanks. :)
I don't know what's so good about FireFox anyway. I don't get it at all.

EVERYONE needs to use Firefox. Its the Metal Gear Solid of web browsing.

Their is Mozilla Firefox and then their is everything else.

I just ran a test and the latest Safari build blew the latest Firefox build out of the water. All of these tests always compare beta to release but in a beta to beta comparison Firefox really gets smoked. If your interested in the betas there actually called webkit and are the open source engine of Safari. Safari is just a gui for it. Thus the nightly webkit builds are identical to Safari on the surface (even have the same version number) except for a gold icon instead of silver.

I'm using Firefox 3 Beta 5 and its the fastest browser I've ever experienced and I tried safari and its fast too but just not as fast. I have a friend that loves apple but he likes crap. I love pc, when it gets out of date I just change some parts not go to the apple store and buy the another computer thats slightly better than the last.

It's so close as to be a non-issue. Add a single extension and it's back to even between the two. So, while extensions are a boon they also can be a liability. There's something to be said for prioritizing your install choices. Btw, if you want to disagree, here's an Ars Tech article with proof:

The best thing about this is that Firefox 3 is so much > Firefox 2. So much that people switching directly to the new release should be stunned. It's amazing how great browsers are improving thanks to healthy competition. That's why I'm all for Opera, Safari, and yes... even IE8 improving.

Browser mono-culture like what we've had with IE6 is unacceptable. It doesn't matter if the name of the browser is IE or Firefox, Opera, Safari, whatever... competition is a win for all of us, and not IE FTW, or Firefox FTW, etc.
