    The Ultimate Web Browser

    I think you are missing some of the options Safari has... such as the PDF rendering with Preview and the option to open windows and tabs in such an accurate mannar that beat FireFox, Opera, and the rest of the browsers. Take a look at all Safari preferences. Then the ability to decompress and open archives automatically and put the files on the desktop. The integrations with .Mac and the ability to synchronize all the labels with other Macs on the internet or in the LAN. The easiest and coolest way to manage and read RSS feed. The ability to download single component of HTML pages without looking at the page but scrolling from the elements loaded by the browser. (I use this basically for saving flash videos from YouTube) And the keyboard shortcuts are also great, you can press command+2 for opening the second preferred label on your Safari bar. Now I don't remember any other feature... oh yes the SnapBack button that let you retur with one click on the home page of a site you are visiting without pressing the "back" button 5000 times

    This is your opinion not mine I still love Safari, for me is very fast, is visual-clear and simply to use, very very light and reactive. The User Experience is better then on any other browsers and it don't kill you with useless notification as "Are you sure you want to open 1500 tabs?" it do that without any problems like the finder does with folders and documents (not like Windows) The only lack of Safari is the incompatibility with some sites, that's why I use Camino sometimes. FireFox suck on the Mac. And Opera is good right, but the user interface... it doesn't make me feel at home and the labels are quite difficult to organize. So I think for Mac: Safari for Windows: FireFox

    Installing Osx86

    Ohu... But it's a difficult thing to install OS X on a PC? Can I do that? I have read the passage I have to do but... I can't understand if when I insert the OSX disk it will start the apple installation like on PPC

    Xbench scores (Intel native vs Rosetta)

    HoZy but... you have a RAM Disk? So... If I am right, your Hard Drive Tests are made in the DDR SDRAM...
