What web browser do you use? - 08-24-2009, 07:32 AM
With the limited screen space on my mini 9, I've tried out several of the browsers out with the exception on IE. I was using safari 4 for a first couple of months with my mini and enjoyed it, but it was lacking. I tried chromium, which is promising, but doesn't quite do it for me. I ended up using firefox 3.5 because of all of the scripts and plug-ins to tweak the browser.
For instance, the add-on "FaviconizeTab" lets you right-click and choose from the menu to only display the favicon. The real benefit is in the settings where you can plug in http*://*.google.com/* and all of your google sites load with only the favicon. Don't know why I enjoy it so much, but it seems to please the eye on the small screen.
Also Xmarks has a great add-on where you can offsite sync your bookmarks. Which in my OCD world helps keep things organized between my mini and desktop, etc.
Anyways, what do you all use and why?

I use FF 3.5 and Safari 4
I have not decided which one I enjoy better on my netbook. I usually use FF 3.5 as my main browser on all of my computers (work/home/Mac/PC).
As a side note, I do not understand why people put their Speedtest.net results in their signature. Is it supposed to be a competition? Show off their connection speed?
If so, some people should just not post it... because, hate to break it to ya, 10Mb/s down and .9 Mb/s up is nothing to brag about
