Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser.

Firefox 3.5 offers many changes over the previous version, supporting new web technologies, improving performance and ease of use, and adding new features for users: It is now available in more than 70 languages, includes a Private Browsing mode, better performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine, the ability to provide Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation, support for native JSON, and web worker threads, support for new web technologies such as: HTML5 < video > and < audio > elements, downloadable fonts and other new CSS properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 offline data storage for applications, and SVG transforms.

There is a separate entry for the beta release of Firefox 3 (Search for Firefox 3). This entry is only for stable releases of Firefox.

I used to stick with Firefox because of firebug, but the new Web inspector is just as good (not the black HUD thingy — that's ugly as sin). So I stick with OmniWeb. That one even uses more recent versions of WebKit than the official Safari.

"first of all: safari 3.0 BETA has tabbed browsing, not 2.0"

Uh, Safari has supported tabs since the 0.9 Public Beta back in 2003.

You're probably thinking of draggable/rearrangeable tabs, which did first make their appearance with the 3.0 Public Beta.

A possibly useful tip: going to about:config and turning off 'keyword.enabled' will make the address bar behave more every other Mac browser's.

I can now type "apple/ipod" in the address bar and it'll take me to www.apple.com/ipod. That has been driving me crazy.

BonEcho is faster... ;-)

I don't care if it's a little slower, when it has so many awesome add-ons.

matu: Safari does have tabbed browsing...
