Well, why do you use Safari?



I use it because it supports proper continuous zooming with pinch-to-zoom on a trackpad (exactly like Safari on iOS devices). Chrome does a weird step-by-step increment that seems to involve re-laying out the page at each step. The multi-touch interaction with Safari is just better in general, IMO.

I hadn't noticed that, it's pretty slick actually, if you keep pinching it also zooms out to show you all of the tabs you have open.

I use Safari because in my experience Chrome is rather buggy on a Mac. Particularly with regard to Spaces. E.g., if I move a Chrome window to a different Space, all of my other Chrome windows will tag along for the ride. It makes using Chrome rather unbearable. Additionally, Safari's interface for managing bookmarks is much nicer.

I'm using firefox because of the same reason, google chrome is using a lot of memory on mac...

I use Chrome on a Mac with a half dozen spaces with multiple monitors and have never had problem moving between spaces. Out of curiosity are you using the release, beta or dev channel?

-----


I just use the standard release of Chrome. I Googled about the problem several times and all I could find out is that some people experience this issue and others don't, and no cure was known. The problem did not go away via numerous upgrades of Chrome, so I eventually gave up.

-----


Hrm, I use Spaces and Chrome with no problems. This isn't the case for everyone.

-----


I use iCloud to sync bookmarks and open tabs between my Mac and iDevices (Chrome is not nearly as good as Safari yet on iOS).

-----


Safari 6 is excellent. Faster than Chrome on OS X.
