The Firefox Mac port obeys all the guidelines for Mac, but the menus  
and icons are poorly designed.  I haven't looked at Firefox on  
Windows but on x86 and PowerPC linux, and Mac OS X it has *huge*  
memory leak problems.  So bad it's become known as "FireHog" in  
developer circles.

The Gecko rendering engine of Firefox is proven, and it's a more  
secure browser than IE.  Safari was a little wet behind the ears  
until ver 2.0 came out in Tiger.  Safari has passed the Acid2 tests -  
the first web browser to do so - and I find no websites any longer,  
that adhere to web standards, that Safari won't reliably render.   
Unfortunately there's a few sites that don't adhere to web standards  
and Firefox is still better on those.
