    Latest Safari is pretty crappy I have to admit. Hopefully this will improve things.

    I still get random hangs and quits when I'm jumping around in Safari with way too many apps open.

    Maybe the Vista update will help.

    so far, every shortcut key combo has worked out for me.
    didn't know about ff3 (still on 2.0 on my desktop), but i have to give this due diligence. it's sooooo nice, and for a yet-to-be-explained reason, isn't as hesitant & cpu hungry.

    ok, i'll be using safari until then. it's just become an unbearable hog. i'm pretty sure the fact that i keep 999 days of history doesn't help, but something is gumming up the works & i've taken all addons off & done all the other "tricks" you find when googling.

    FF2 is still faster than the latest Safari for me as I have extensions that cut down on the crap it has to load - adblock, noscript (sometimes), flashblock (always), and fasterfox (within RFC) plus various about:config tweaks.

    I haven't tried Opera in a while but before FF2 and all those great extensions for FF, it was faster for me...
