I use Safari, but if, like me you are running a netbook with a 16GB SSD, the disk space taken up by the cache can get to be a problem after an intensive browsing session - fortunately there is the 'empty cache' command on the File menu.

It's got a lot of fans, but not actually open source.

I'm using Chrome 9 predominantly, but I'm pretty polygamous when it comes to internet browsers. Opera seems better with forum type webpages.

I'm using Firefox, solely for the extensions I need (e.g. Delicious sidebar).

I set my mom up with Chrome on hers and it works great. I'd probably switchi to it as well if not for

Safari...count me in the mobileme minority-I know I can use xmarks, but push bookmark syncing to my iPhone/iPad is too good to give up

Firefox, because of extensions like FireBug, Mouse Gestures, AdBlock+, FlashBlock, etc.
Other browsers seem so anemic... . I'm a developer, learning Drupal, CSS, SQL, PHP, so ff is the best for my needs. I do use Safari simultaneously so I can be logged as admin on Firefox, and a test user on Safari.

If you are a typical user, though, I'd say Safari seems to load pages a bit faster, especially the recently released update. Oh and Click2Flash is a must-have ext.
