First impression: very speedy! Hypergrid notably doesn’t feel like a tarpit.
Every time I try to like Safari I find myself going back to Chrome or Firefox. What advantages over these browsers does Safari bring to the table that make switching worthwhile?
Battery Life is noticeably better than Chrome and FFX.
Integration of bookmarks, history, etc with Mobile Safari
It doesn’t record mic audio and stream it to google.
My favorite feature is iCloud Keychain, which makes it ridiculously easy to generate & secure passwords across my iPad/iPhone/Macbook.
Firefox doesn’t do that either, but I did say FF or Chrome :)
Not sure, as I use Safari by default. However, I do use Chrome if I need to use Google Calendar / hangouts. I also use Chrome for Scratch, because of its built-in and self-updating Flash support. (I don’t otherwise have Flash installed.)
That’s part of my issue. I used Chrome for a long time because I need multiple G+ accounts logged in at the same time. I decided that supporting OSS was important so I switched to Firefox and now use multiple profiles for this - it’s not elegant but it works.
There’s always Chromium, the upstream OSS project.
