Safari doesn't hog much RAM on a 1GB system. At least I don't think it does.

Played with Chrome when it first came out. Felt it didn't conform to my habits. Still using Firefox.

Tried, its decent but slow for me (probably because I'm on Win7 RC x64 lol).

Though for some reason I can't seem to switch from 'microsoft' stuff to other stuff, like IE to FF, or WMP to iTunes/Winamp, etc. :P I think I'm mental O.O

unless there is a winning combination of noscript/adblock/element hider/flashblock/tab mix plus/Digital Persona equivalent exetensions in safari (and trust me i've looked) FF seems perfect for me...:)
im really security conscious and even more as im running clean with no av....
and so far no virus for all the time ive been running win7 (ever since 6801..)

You could sort of have adblock with chrome now by using privoxy which ad blocks.

your are right of course swarfega
but i just love how adblock not only block ads but i can selectively block scripts and a sub extesion element hider it can hide the ones it cant block...:)
should have explained more...
while i do love noscript's selective to domain sometimes i just want more control of what scripts are active or blocked...
flashblock is also another block of security which also allows me more control of what flash objects are active or not (noscript has the funtionality too but i also cant activate scripts if deactivate it....
for dp its more of convenience where like i said i have gnarly passwords (currently the longest is 63 avg is 23 go figure and i have about 100 passwords so by that count its a PITA to remember them all)
and since *all* of my passwords are encrypted even more security...:)
tab mix plus...
like i said control of how my tabs work
i guess its too much to ask...lol
might as well code my own addons..
ff spoiled me with so much control....:)
