Firefox is amazing. Safari is cool, but the power of Add-ons gives Firefox the edge over all other browsers. Plus, you can use it on almost any OS. Very useful when running 3.

Firefox is slower than Camino. Use Camino is it 10 times faster than firefox and doesn't take long time starting up.

Enjoy!!

I can't resist posting a tips about this superior Firefox skin (working fine in Firefox 3.0b5+):

Just installed the minefield pre-release. The interface is VERY slick, and they were nice enough to name the app something other than Firefox (MineField) so that you can just close it and open up your old version if needed. So you aren't locked into the upgrade to the beta

To enable "disabled" plugins in Minefield (Firefox 3.0b), install a the plugin "Nightly Tester Tools." Afterwards, go to your AddOn tab and click on Extensions, then click on the "Make all compatible" button on the bottom right-hand corner. Also, click on the Preferences button on the Nightly Tester Tool addon, then select "Add-ons", then disable add-on compatibility checking. Restart Firefox and enjoy.

I would use Firefox on my Mac IF it was as fast or faster than Safari. Unfortunately it isn't and takes a long time to start up.

is there an easy way to enable disabled addons on fx3?

I love using Firefox at work on Windows machines, but it's not used as often on my macs. I tend to run Camino and Flock much more frequently. My wife swears by it though...
