Why Not Remove Safari From OSX / Firefox / Chrome Have Surpassed It Completely In Functionality / Usability

Mar 23, 2012

To be honest the whole safari thing is always going to be a running joke to everyone.Safari cant play embedded videos or loads of the content on youtube because of Apple insistence to lock it to only use thier version of flash, why not remove it all together and have a browser choice like Windows has this would at least give the users a chance to get a browser that is fully functional?

MacBook Air :: Safari - Chrome Or Firefox - Memory Hog?

Nov 9, 2010

I saw a thread the other day that alluded that Chrome or FF were memory hogs vs Safari. I have FF on my iMac and like it fairly well, my wife really prefers it. I have not installed it on my MBA because of the comments that I read the other day. It seemed like someone also posted Chrome was almost or as bad. There have been some spirited threads on how to keep our Airs running at top efficiency, going both easy on the RAM and on the battery life. The general consensus amongst members is Flash with a Flash filter plugin such as ClickToFlash battery life. If a browser is a memory hog will it also hasten the battery's discharge or just sap your RAM? Or would the user never really notice the difference unless they were tunnel visioned on their system monitor whilst surfing the web?

Applications :: Safari Versus Chrome - Firefox

Jul 3, 2010

I cannot seems to find a good browser, yes I know Safari 5 is decent but as my wife just noted me today.

It seems that it cannot "multi-task' with tabs, what I mean she opened 2 flash games from Facebook in two tabs, so while 1 tab is playing the game the second one stands still on loading screen. I have decided to test if that was the Facebook problem and loaded 2 games in separate tabs from other game website, to my surprise same result.

Im also experiencing some issues with youtube, while Im loading video sometimes it stops loading video half way through or may be 40%.

Chrome, well its ok but sometimes it slows on flash as well.

Now the real issue I'm having is from Firefox; I have the latest version installed I think 3.6. After a few minutes it starts to get slow, later on it stops responding to the point that my dock and apple bar just freezes. The only solution is to activate spaces, move to empty space and force quit it.

Applications :: Safari, Firefox And Chrome All Hang - How To Repair

Dec 15, 2010

Well, I didn't change or install anything but since this afternoon Safari began to pause about 3/4 of the way loading a page. It would hang for about 3 seconds, give me the color wheel then load the rest of the page.

So, I installed Firefox and Chrome and they both do the same thing.

Applications :: Safari / FireFox And Chrome Freezes On Some Pages

Jan 18, 2010

I used to have a name on this site but haven't used it in 4 or 5 years so I had to create a new one. Anyway, I started having a problem with Safari today. Every time I would go to ESPN or gmail it would freeze up, the spinning rainbow would come up and I would have to force quite the app. I thought it may just be a problem with Safari so I downloaded the latest FireFox and Chrome and to my surprise they began freezing up too doing the same thing. I've got a 13" MBP w/ the 2.53 GHz Core 2 duo and 4GB RAM. I ran a software update yesterday afternoon/evening when prompted to, but didn't check to see what it was. I do know it was one that didn't force me to do a restart.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Versus Chrome / Firefox On 2008

Jun 10, 2010

I currently own a late 2008 15 inch macbook pro. It's my first Mac, and I'm very satisfied with it.

I recently downloaded Safari 5 and have been less than impressed. I find the performance extremely sporadic: sometimes very fast, sometimes painfully slow. I have also lost Youtube and Justintv functionality, and since I take online courses the video sites are imperative for me.

I've re-loaded Firefox and also Chrome, and over the last three days seem to be leaning towards Chrome for its balance of speed and overall functionality.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Silverlight Works On Safari And Chrome, But Not On Firefox

May 31, 2012

I am having trouble with  Silverlight, which is necessary to stream movies on Netflix. Every time I click on a movie to watch I get a prompt to install Silverlight, even though I have already done so. This occurs on Firefox, my default brower, but not on Safari or Chrome.  

I am running a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.3. It seems there is some incompatibility problem that affects Firefox but not other browsers. I could switch to Safar or Chrome as my default browser or stay with Firefox and use another browser for Netflix, but neither solution is perfect, and I would love to get Netflix to work on Firefox.

Safari :: Unable To Load Pages That Firefox & Chrome Do Easily?

I'm running Safari 5.02 on a 15" Macbook Pro running 10.6.6.  ALL TOO OFTEN I will attempt to access a page [URL] and it will not load.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Suddenly Safari Won't Load Page While Chrome And Firefox Can

May 22, 2012

I’ll try to be as specific as I can. I’m running Safari 5.1.7 

From time to time, Safari seems to encounter a problem with opening https (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure). Either the page won’t open or the page will take deveral minutes to load (like four minutes to load Twitter home page). 

When it happens, it seems to cause Safari the misbehave with any other page: Safari becomes in effect broken. Meanwhile, pages load normally in Chrome or Firefox.  

Sometimes, restarting the computer will fix the problem (for a while), but sometime it doesn’t. I’ve also tried to empty Safari’s cache and flush its DNS. It doesn’t always work. I coming here because I restarted by computer half an hour ago and pages are still loading in Safari. 

Other valuable information: 

1) The problem with https existed prior to me upgrading to 5.1.7

2) I can be using Safari for days before I encounter the problem

3) I usually work with thre or four windows open, each loaded with about ten tabs.

Safari :: Firefox, Chrome All Crash Whenever Attempt To Upload A File Via HTTP

Apr 2, 2012

It doesn't seem to matter what browser I'm using, but whenever I attempt to upload a file via a browser it crashes. 

It doesn't matter what site it is,  but whenever I click an "upload" link that would normally result in a Finder window popping up to allow me to browse for a file, then the browser crashes on me. 

I'm running Safari 5.1.5 (7534.55.3), Firefox 12.0, and Chrome 18.01. . . 

Below is the gobbledy-good that gets spat out after Safari dies: 

Process:         Safari [45066]

OS X :: Required Software Regarding Google Chrome And Firefox

Dec 15, 2010

I read Chrome is supposed to be basic and less resource hungry so I downloaded it and installed it. It is very fast but I have two issues with it. The first is how it does not warn you if you are going to close multiple tabs (I've heard the PC version just added the feature a week ago but who knows?). The bigger issue is that Chrome is ungodly resource hungry or I just do not know how to read a computer...it shows at any given moment that at least 6 Google Chrome processes are running and they take up substantial memory. Below is a pic of the activity monitor (there are 4 more Google processes lower down which I couldnt photo).

OS X :: Flash No Longer Working On Chrome/Firefox?

Aug 13, 2010

Last few days my flash no longer works.

YouTube videos play (can hear sound) but just a black box, unless I full screen I can see it. All other flash (e.g. Dailymotion, Vimeo) don't play at all.

Works fine on Safari, but not on Firefox and Chrome.

I have uninstalled Flash, no luck.

Is this something to do with the hardware acceleration?

I have a silver unibody MacBook.

EDIT: I'm on 10.6.3 Snow Leopard

MacBook Pro :: Random Video Jitter On Both Chrome And Firefox

Aug 22, 2014

So, I'm having this strange jitter issue when I watch videos and sometimes brows the net. I've tried both Chrome and Firefox and this happens across the board. 

Random video jitter, almost like an interference every now and then in Youtube and Netflix. Not just the video has the error, but sometimes the entire page. Someone else was having the same issue and they posted a video. [URL] ....

It's brief, but you can see it and it happens all the time, it really bothers me sometimes.

Applications :: Running Ad Block Plus On Firefox Completely Ineffective?

Oct 31, 2009

I just recently purchased a Macbook pro and have downloaded firefox as my web browser. I installed the add-on adblock pro, and it is without a doubt 100% ineffective; I view web pages and when I place the mouse on top of the icon it tells me it is active, however below it notifies me that it has blocked 0 out of 150 or however blockable items on the given page. I mean absolutely nothing is prevented, I found a similar add on for safari, and the same results, nothing blocked. I must be doing something completely wrong, or something so blatantly obvious, but I really am clueless.

Applications :: How To Uninstall Firefox Completely (Icons / Related Folders)

I did an uninstall of Firefox, wanting to just go back and start over, clean. I went into my profile & deleted that (after saving to USB). Now I'm wondering abt getting rid of the icon and how do I check to make sure there is nothing at all on my computer. Isn't that what I want in the event I just want to start over? I love Firefox and just want to get it back on my system, operating properly.
