Safari

Browsing made beautiful. And smart.

Before Safari, browsers were an afterthought. Something you put up with if you wanted to surf the internet. One browser looked and felt just like another, so you chose the one that worked the best and crashed the least. They were ugly, cluttered affairs, whose interfaces competed for your attention and made browsing — the very purpose for which they were created — more difficult. Safari changes all that.

Safari is designed to emphasize the browsing, not the browser. The browser frame is a single pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when needed. By default, there’s no status bar. Instead, a progress gear turns as your page loads. And if you so choose, you can hide almost the entire interface, removing virtually every distraction from the browser window. A great browser should get out of your way and let you simply enjoy the web. Safari does just that. And it does it regardless of platform.

The first browser to deliver the “real” internet to a mobile device, Safari renders pages on iPhone and iPod touch just as you see them on your computer. But this is more than just a scaled down mobile-version of the original. It takes advantage of the technologies built into these multi-touch devices. The page shifts and reformats to fill the window when you turn it on its side. You zoom in just by pinching and extending your fingers. Of course, no matter how you access it, Safari is always blazing fast and easy-to-use.

I agree with schmiddi. Everytime I try something else -- Firefox, Shiira, Camino -- I always return to Safari.

Safari the default browser on the Mac works well and is standards compliant.
It was one of the first brosers to pass the "ACID-2" test.
It was based on the Open Source KHTML browser.

I use it as my primary browser for all my browsing needs.
I have firefox and Camino, but hardly use it.

i agree. i've tried to look elsewhere... but safari always calls me back. if only there were something that could make it compatible with all the web 2.0 & google stuff right out of the gate.

I think i have tried pretty much any Mac browser but in the end i always come back to Safari.

I gave Camino a try and now I can't look back.
