    Or you can use Mac OS X, where Safari has these features built in. Best reason to use Firefox these days is Greasemonkey, which I have yet to play with because that’ll be a classic example of a Lost Weekend.

    Jeff, although I haven’t gone Tiger yet, I’m pretty sure that Safari doesn’t have Google Pagerank. And probably some other things.

    The BEST reason to use Firefox is that it is approved by the head Rabbi of Israel.

    That link is down at the moment, so I’ll post the last paragraph.

    ‘“Firefox?” The Rabbi stops and thinks for a minute, rubbing his beard. “Ah yes! The one that blocks all the schmutz.”’

    I think I read that a Safari version was on its way from Google as well. Google toolbar has the various Google searches (web, news, images, groups, etc.) and pagerank, but also the auto-fill button to fill out Web forms (which I absolutely love), a spell checker (for within web forms), a language translator, and a search term highlighter (which is also unbelievably useful). It also has the “Blog This” button, which gives me 1-click access to my blog from any web-page (opens a text editor window with the URL of the page pre-loaded as a hyperlink, so I can add text & go). A real time saver, especially when I’m at work…
