We haven't updated to Lion yet but we will. We only are using Safari right now and blech*. Which has the least amount of glitches and privacy issues. Thanks.

1. I've installed a slew of browsers, including Firefox and Chrome
Chrome is fast, and convenient if you google lots
Firefox is more customizable and has some great plugins
Opera is extremely customizable, and good if you're gonna have lots of webpages open, but I think the plugins aren't always great
Flock seems useful is you're going to track a lot of RSS feeds
Shiira will decompose webpages usefully for you, if you need to do that
&c&c

2. I do a lot of "visual" and other research for arts related inspiration. Need the one
that allows me the best access to information and not a ton of commercial crud. I don't know why I am afraid of Chrome..... MAybe I will go to the old standby, Firefox.

4. I use OMNI. I like the tray for open pages.
I occasionally run into a page that will not work correctly while using it, but otherwise find it fast and stable.

:hi:

5. Firefox
I've been on Firefox since my Windows days. When I switched to Mac I stayed with Firefox. I have Chrome and Safari on my MacBook in case a site works better with them - such as some of my work stuff, but for the most part I do just about everything with Firefox. Plus I have a netbook with Ubuntu on it, so I use Firefox on there since it works pretty much the same on that platform.
