    Good review, but just to let you know, Safari is not a very secure browser, it apparently has a lot of vulnerabilities in it that let people hack it. I'd stick with Firefox if I were you, as it is safer then Safari (still not 100% though, nothing is).

    safari 3.1 just came out today and addressed a myriad of issues it had been quoted as having. but i like it better than FF as far as usability goes.

    FF will own my PC tower, but I'm digging Safari on the Mac

    Yeah, Safari owns. I've been using the 3.1 beta for awhile so I forgot how broke the old release version was. 3.1 is fast, stable, solid. Plus, if you combine Safari 3.1 with the latest WebKit Nightly build, you get even further improved compatibility.

    Safari 3.1 beta is version 525.13.
    Safari 3.1 final is version 525.13.
    I'll upgrade to the final version later, but considering they have the same version number, I think they just rebadged the beta as final.

    Some interesting numbers for the ACID3 test:
    Firefox 3.0 beta 3 gets a 61/100
    Firefox 3.0 beta 4 gets a 69/100
    Safari 3.1 gets a 75/100
    Safari 3.1 with the r31135 WebKit Nightly build gets a 91/100

    This means Safari is far more web-compliant than even the unreleased Firefox 3.0. Not to mention it uses less memory and is way faster than Firefox at rendering.

    Refresh my memory, what did IE get again?

    (These don't include the latest WebKit Nightly build that scores a 91/100)

    I prefer on firefox that when I type "google" in the address bar and hit CMND + enter/return, it opens in that tab or whatever I was doing it in. However, in safari and webkit safari, I do the same, and it opens it up in a new tab. This gets quite annoying.

    I also personally prefer the UI in firefox, especially little things such as the Bookmarks Toolbar

    What?

    If you're in a current tab in either Firefox or Safari, just type in the URL you want to go to in the address bar, hit enter, and it will open it in the current tab. There's no need for a key combination.

    Its a stupid preference really, but I would wish that there was a setting that it wouldn't open in a new tab. The point of the CMND+enter/return is that you don't have to type in the whole URL, and it is something I've become accustomed too.

    I usually just type in part of the url and either press tab or the down arrow and enter.

    If I just type "str," it brings up a list of all the StrafeRight

    If I'm going to a new URL, I just type google.com or straferight.com. I usually don't prefix it with www.
