Changed browsers from Chrome to Safari and really enjoying it

Much more pleasant experience somehow. Feels faster and more elegant.

Maybe it's optimized for Mac in a way that Chrome cannot be, since Google does not have the Mac source code I assume.

If Apple makes it, it must be better.

Five years ago, Safari was an embarrassment. Now it all but makes toast and is stable.

I use a Mac, but I have to say I prefer the look of Chrome. Guess it's just what I'm used to at this stage.

Google makes a lot of noises with their new phone but guess what their market share is? 0.5%.

Safari is my favorite browser.

I got a lot better at using it. It is deep with features.

Nothing against Firefox but Safari feels smoother and offers no major frustrations.

Chrome used to feel sleek but steeped in the big brother push of the Borg empires of Google and Adobe. Clashes cropped up.

I could not ever get videos to stop autoplaying in Safari, so moved back to Chromium.

Disappointing. Click2play just was not stopping the videos.

I think Apple does not want users to have the option to have a quiet experience. If they did, they'd put in an option to stop all autoplay for all kinds of video.

Autoplay is evil. It is the modern form of the blink tag.

Autoplay and other "slap you in the face with a dick to get your attention" tactics are inherently disrespectful. Companies that use them should not be at all respected.

I'm thinking the same thing about webpage push notifications as well.

Update your flash? I just did and I think it gave a quick button, disable auto play.

I rather like Edge. After a few updates, it seems to be working well. I have IE for a backup.

Those work only with Service Workers, right?

I've never gotten a webpage push notification. Is it just a popup?
