    adel, you can try to extract all your bookmarks with safari bookmarks extractor http://www.arcadiadesign.it/deerdesign/sbe/english/english.html then import the extracted file using bookmarks manager in firefox :D

    You can have a dozen browsers even, it won't have any adverse effects on your system. But if you really want to remove IE, just drag it from the Applications folder into the trash.

    Did anyone notice that the Google ad at the bottom of our forum is still flushed left even when using the already official Firefox 1.0 release? In Safari, the Google ad is exquisitely centered. Just an observation.

    You can also use something like URL Manager Pro. Let's you access your bookmarks from any application (like several different browsers).

    When you decompress Firefox 1.0.dmg.gz, another dmg file will appear. Double click on that and it will mount the Firefox installer, just drag Firefox to your Applications folder (or any folder in your hard disk). After that you can safely delete both the dmg.gz file and the dmg file :) HTHs.

    Coming from an Omniweb user, I have to say that Firefox is so much faster but I've been spoiled by thumbnail tabs that I'm sticking with Omniweb :) But if the guys decide to make Firefox use OS X's systemwide spell checker, I'd switch in a heartbeat.

    I don't know if it's just me but I find that Firefox loads pages much slower than IE?

    Hmmm Miguel when I saw your post I decided to try it out for myself. And hot damn, you weren't kidding. It's blazing!

    Methinks I will be straying away from my Safari/Saft combination for the next few weeks.

    I think its just you..:p

    But seriously, its probably because of your cache.
    You've been using Explorer rather than Safari haven't you?:dry:

    Clear out the cache on both Explorer and Firefox, then see which one is faster..
    :beer:
