  • I continue to use Safari because it has two things Firefox doesn't:
    • Cocoa key bindings
    • The Services menu
    Until Firefox gets those (say "never"), I can't give those up. How are you doing without those?

    • There are still two things driving me nuts right now (obviously I don't have exactly the same usage patterns as you do, but mine are personal to me):

      1) Firefox doesn't use OS-X widgets. This affects me in one critical way - double clicking on an IP address does not highlight the whole IP. This works in every other OS-X application, and I use this about 200 times a day. This is pushing me back towards Safari in a big way.

      2) The RSS reader. Safari's is sweet. I like the fact that it's nicely integrated into my toolbar bookmarks, and tells me when there's "new stuff" for me to read. I just saw that there's a Dashboard thingy for google reader bookmarks, but I tend to rarely use Dashboard, so I'm not sure that would solve it.

      There are other subtle GUI issues, but overall I'm OK with firefox for now.

      What I don't want to do is end up having to pay for Leopard just to get a faster browser.

      PS: Great news on your Expungement (ok so there's no such word, but you know what I mean). It's about bloody time. Hope to see you up in Canada soon.
