  • First, let me say that I am in no way a Firefox hater or a Safari fanboy. But I have to ask... Do you have any data to support your claim that Firefox is compatible with more sites? Cause that has not been my personal experience. Some of the compatibility issues have been fixed with Firefox 3's release, but not all. I use both browsers for hours on end each and every day. And I can tell you with 100% certainty that Safari tends to give me fewer issues than Firefox. I'm a fan of what they are doing with Firefox. But I am not one to subscribe to the recent hype without numbers to back up the claims. So exactly which sites are you referring to when you make these claims? Without details and data, this post comes across as fanboism and hype. (no offense). My last check shows that Safari still ranks higher on the Acid test than Firefox, unless something has changed recently. And as far as resources? I don't think you are giving an accurate review there either. For quite some time, it has been Firefox that has had the major problems with memory leaks, leading to bloat. Of course, this was before FF 3. But most people load up FF with a plethora of plugins (FF's biggest pro and con) which ends up bogging down the browser. Without plugins, FF is fine. But who the hell wants to use FF without plugins? Please provide some hard data as to which sites you used to compare the browsers. I'd love to check it out myself. For your sample, your claims may be accurate. My experience has been different.
