My Mac OS downloaded the Safari 4 update today (I thought I had the Safari 4 update already, but it was just 3.23). I tried it out and it is VERY fast. However, it's still lacking in features compared to Firefox, and I'm not talking about extensions. It's ad handling capabilities are below even the basic setup of Firefox, and while it looks good, it's still a bit clunky in some respects.

Same here. I gave it a shot, but two minutes of looking at the stuff that Greasemonkey and other extensions block out for me sent me running back to my Firefox.

Safari, even on a Mac, is slow as molasses to me.
Normally, I'd agree, but they've done something to Safari 4.

Yeah. It still feels too clunky to be my default browser. Backup? Sure, but that's it.

If browsers were women...
