Nobody. Even that it is the best browser to follow standards.

That's what I'm thinking, too.

I've loaded it up. So far, I like it better than Chrome.

So far, it's similar enough to FF that I've not been thrown off.  I think I'll be able to make the jump.  Toolbars customize a-ok.  If it has a userchrome that I can tweak, I'd like to re-order some of the toolbars --if I can do that, it'll be pretty close to cloning my old FF setup.

Nope, Bocelli. Much better eye for aesthetics. I mean, look at Pavo. Would you trust him with your websites?

@ RC - I don't see any reason why not - it's stable and safe. Why moving from FF, if you don't mind me asking?

>why

3 reasons sort of converging

#1 Same reason I moved to FF; "security in obscurity"
that's no longer the case for FF
see my earlier post today:
http://www.perkiset.org/forum/all_things_apple/iphone_ie_firefox_safari_get_stomped_at_hacker_contest-t2602.0.html
My own security isn't the issue, it's the realty office. I'm going to have them switch to Opera so I'm going to have to at least taste the kibble myself.

#2 Smartphones coming. Probably HTC Touch Pro2. I want the same browser across all devices. And I want that smartphone locked down.

#3 FF is getting to be slow to boot since 3.4 or 3.5. I'm not running that many addons, either.

I'd consider it for mobile but personally I'm an FF primary and Chrome/Safari secondary for speed.  I switch between Safari and Chrome since they both screw up different aspects of page rendering in their own unique ways Wink  Chrome is still the cleanest and fastest for Apex/Visualforce development.

IE??  Slow and buggy.  Worst of both worlds imo, though they claim the crown of security.  But annoying rendering issues in IE while I'm falling asleep watching painfully slow page loads?  Sometimes less is more and Microsoft still needs to learn that lesson.  Win 7 is super fast though.

I'm ready to dump Safari, even though I like it better than anything else in many ways (speed, interface, etc.)  The problem is that it's got a huge memory leak, and has for at least a year.  I can't even leave it running overnight or by morning, it's using 1.5-2 *GIGABYTES* of RAM and my Mac has slowed to the point that I usually have to do a hard reset to recover.

I think the problem is intertwined with Flash; it certainly happens more noticeably if I've used pages with a lot of Flash on them.  But there don't need to be any such pages open for the memory use to gradually climb, all on its own, until it takes all the physical memory available in the machine.

I can't believe Apple hasn't fixed the problem, it's hugely annoying.

So maybe I'll look at Opera... (there, now I'm back on topic.)   Grin
