    Home Page:
    Fire fox for mac -- to check network stats -- its fast and i love how its setup
    but it bogs down after 30+ tabs opened. Memory hog.
    chrome for the mac - to keep on eye on my traffic servers - its good browser but I do not like the set up

    Internet Explorer on mac(parallels) - to make sure my sites look right for windows users

    Safari on mac - to make sure sites look good for mac fanatics

    Firefox, but am getting a bit annoyed with the constant
    odd behavior that I've actually become used to.

    Firefox 8 on Mac with a bunch of plugins. Does the job, open source, I'm used to it and I don't trust Chrome. Yes it is a hog and a bit slow sometimes. Opera is good too but doesn't have the plugins I need.

    I use every browser I can (on Mac and Windows) to test my sites.

    firefox and opera, less crashing and freezing up for me. plus i love the mail program opera has, it's a client but it's on the browser itself


    was a big fan of chrome but crashed to much along with IE of course.

    avant isn't bad.

    My favorite:
    Firefox with Proxy Tool FF addon/plugin.

    Note to everyone: If you are having troubles with Firefox browser, you may want to reset your browser.

    Instructions:

    Restore Firefox Default Settings Without Uninstalling It

    1) Run firefox -safe-mode
    2) Click on "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults" You may want to check all of them if you feel that it will help.

    These above steps will help on resetting the browser to default mode.

    If your computer is 64 bits, and still want faster browser, get WaterFox
    http://waterfoxproj.sourceforge.net/

    It is mentioned in Proxy Tool FF addon thread here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/proxies/242737-proxy-tool-addon-firefox-chrome.html

    Hope it helps.

    Chrome is good - it's quick and looks nice. Firefox is also cool, alot faster than it used to be and has loads of addons.

    Personally opera is still my favourite though - love how it syncs favourites and stuff whatever computer your on.

    Love the password "wand".

    And I like the way tabs work.

    Only annoying thing is it's only compatible with about 90% of sites.

    I'm using Chrome because I can open a lot of tabs without lag problems. That was the main reason for switching Firefox with Chrome.

    I use

    1) Firefox -- because of an addiction to plugins but what pisses me off is RAM overuse with up to 2gb / 6gb which is insane
    2) Opera -- Reliable, Ram usage is great, and the way you put tabs together is fantastic it is very close to be my main browser
    3)Chrome -- Small header and quite fast ! I like quite good but i dislike doing IM activities with my oponent Google ;)
    4) Internet Explorer -- I never open it, it sucks by definition whatever they do about it it will always sucks :p

    Chromium -> Don't trust Chrome, so use the development builds.

    For those using Chrome/Chromium, here's some hidden options which are quite neat :)

    net-internals, cache, and sync are good ones. (don't load the cache one if you have a lot of cache data).
