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.

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.

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.

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 use Firefox 16.0.1, at a resolution of 1366x768.
But that is on my laptop.

On my Game-PC I have 1920x1080 Full HD, and the same browser as on my laptop.

on the pc it was 3840x1024 till my adapters failed and i reverted back to a dual monitor setup and cheap craigslist 22" at 1600x900 and 1280x1024. on the tv i run 1280x720 because at 1920x1080, it's kinda hard to read the text. some games i run in 1080 but it's powered by a 5670 and any game is a feat in itself to run on that rig.

I run Chrome on my 134" Home Theater screen at 1080p. I have to set the text to 150% though to be able to read the text though.

I am now using Firefox 33.0 at a resolution of 1366*764.
Switched many times from different browsers, but Firefox is my favourite!
But I never turn on the Sync-function, it messes all my bookmarks up...
