    Web Browser?

    What web browser should I be using? Does it matter?

    Always use Safari, because if you use Safari, you were probably smart enough to buy a Mac.

    I use Google Chrome with AdBlock at home. I like it so much better than IE.

    At work, I'm stuck with IE6.0. I don't suggest it.

    The only problem with chrome is that it is a resource hog. If you keep more than 10 tabs open it will kill your ram. It also has some kind of memory leak over time. Firefox 4.0 beta is really sweet with its tab group feature.

    Why would you have over 10 tabs open? I have Chrome open all day and have seen no signs of a leak. Very possible that an extension could cause this though.

    Chrome. Make sure you setup the sync in the options.

    I frequently have more than 10 tabs open in Chrome, and have no memory problems.

    However, I did with Firefox, so it very well may be some extension that causes this.

    Re: Web Browser?

    I actually have 412 tabs open this moment using Safari, and not only am I having ZERO memory problems, I'm actually gaining memory because my Mac is learning. It made my coffee this morning also.
