No...sorry, guess you're not familiar with Safari and OmniWeb? They are two different browser applications. I use tabs and keep multiple windows open in both. But they have slightly different feature sets and tabbed browsing behavior and I sometimes prefer one or the other for certain web sites or browsing behavior. Safari tends to be faster at page rendering but OmniWeb has a richer feature set.

Typically, I have one browser window open. Sometimes I have a dozen. I keep both applications open.
Safari is Apple's own browser for Mac, but they do make a Windows Version.

Re: What browser do you use and what resolution do you view?

I think Google has finally figured it out with Chrome. I think I actually like it better than Firefox. It is zippier and they now have all my favorite add-on's/extensions.

I've been using Chrome as long as I can remember. Firefox was good, but Chrome seemed better. I'm sure there are some cons, but I haven't found them.

It can consume a lot of memory and has some memory leak issues. Even so, still my favorite browser.

Re: What browser do you use and what resolution do you view?

It does not seem to remember my history too well. The toolbar is not customizable. You need an extension for the WYSIWYG editor to work properly in vBulletin forums... and then it is buggy, very buggy. I was liking it but am finding too many issues.

I roll with Safari. Never seems to let me down... Cat think of a reason why I'd switch! ;-)

I've noticed the memory issues in the past, but not recently. Hopefully they are still throwing resources at it.

Re: What browser do you use and what resolution do you view?

Back to FF for me... Chrome is missing too much that I am accustomed to using and it just does not work well with vBulletin. Google could easily fix these issues, but choose to ignore them, so I will go back to ignoring Chrome for now.

I mostly use Firefox on my Mac, but sometimes websites don't respond well in it and I have to open Chrome.
