I've been using Safari, and it seems nice, but there are a few things I miss about Firefox:
- "/" for incremental search;
- "Flush Cookies at Exit"
- The "Link Toolbar" extension;
- The "BugMeNot" extension;
- The "Translate" extension;
- The "Page Info" dialog.
To put the "Mail" question in perspective: I currently read my mail in Netscape 3.02. It's simple but I like it. I've been using this program for gargantuan volumes of mail throughout the last (oh my god) ten years. I've hacked it to hand clicked links off to another web browser, so I don't actually use it for displaying web pages. So currently I'm SSHing from X11 on my my Mac to a Linux box, and running ns3 remotely; when I click a link in ns3, it runs a script that SSHes back to the Mac and runs some AppleScript to feed the URL in question to Safari. This, uh, kinda demented. I'd like to enter the Twenty-First Century some day.
I have mild religious objections to IMAP, and stronger objections based on the fact that I've yet to see a non-crappy implementation of an IMAP client anywhere.
When I'm at work, I read my mail by SSHing to my home machine and running ns3 from there. It's a little slow, but not so bad (since back when I wrote the damned thing, I actually metered and tuned the protocol usage, which nobody has ever done in an X program since.)
In the Twenty-First Century I will still need a way to read my email from two places at once.
Update: My current plan (subject to change, your mileage may vary): Safari; Mail.app; Adium; just stop using IRC.
