I’ve been on the fence as far as my primary browser is concerned (call me a “browser agnostic” if you will), but find myself using Firefox with tons of extensions for the last 9 months or so, on all my machines (Mac & PC).Camino? Looks nice, but not enough features (one good example of making something too simple in my opinion).Safari? Nice, especially with a few plugins, but gets bogged down too quickly for some reason (I can keep Firefox open for weeks with tons of tabs, and no problems — Safari? not so much…).
OmniWeb has always looked nice, had nice features, etc., but as a web developer (and web junkie — ahem, Flickr user…) I haven’t been able to use it because of its older rendering engine. Even so, I recognized the importance of trying to make the best browser on the Mac, so I purchased a registration months ago, but have almost never launched the app. That registration has now paid off, since their sneak peeks have been my default browser on 3 machines since I started using them at #9 a little over a week ago, and I’m thrilled so far (and I don’t think I’m the only one — check out Jon Hicks’ sneaky peeks guide and also his updated Tiger theme, which makes the “sneaky peeks” even nicer)
Thank you, OmniGroup, for continuing to make your browser the best. It looks like you finally have achieved that goal, with honors (and it’s not even final yet!).
