I like FF on windows, but use IE occasionally.

When using my mac safari is my browser of choice for certain.

Thought I would post some findings from that page 12 recommended:

Im currently using FF 3.5 b4 but miss features that IE8 handles better, such as subscribing to rss feeds and syncing favorites to skydrive (yes I know theres foxmarks).

And, btw, minefield is a bit faster than the current stable.
I am not talking about java speed, but the time from you dobbeltclick on the icon and until google.com is diaplayed, ready to go. On my rig IE8 IS faster to this than FF. FF seems to have reach the level, where all the "smart" things it can automatic seems to slow it down in start. Chrome is starting much faster than FF and IE8 though.

Well, some of that could be superfetch, but I generally agree that FF is getting bloated.
