Which browser do you use, out of curiosity?
I'm a Firefox man. I use a PC at work and Mac at home, so it gives me consistency (amazingly, my company uses Firefox over IE even though we are on an XP network). As a tabbed browsing fan, Firefox does it better than all the rest. I hate IE and Safari never grabbed me (the brushed metal look is really terrible, and will hopefully be gone soon).
I mainly use Safari, although I have six browsers on my computer, so obviously I'm not married to it. Something I really like on Safari is that if you're not sure of a word (whether it's spelled correctly or what its meaning is), you can right click and use Mac's Dictionary. I actually use this function a lot. BUT! Safari has been performing horribly lately and I think I need to abandon it as my main browser. All of my other browsers (except IE, which I have solely to test website design) are tabbed browsers, which is essential, but last night I decided to switch to Camino for a time, but it doesn't have the Dictionary in the contextual menu, nor could I find an extension to get it on there. I used to use Firefox when I used a PC at work and was quite pleased with it, but think it's a bit clumsy on OSX. (I do, however, use it about once a week to check in to my Yahoo Fantasy Sports because it remembers the page when I quit the program.) Do you know if there's an extension I could get for either program to get the Dictionary program functional in the contextual menu?
I'm not sure about the dictionary extension, but did you know that you can download a version of Firefox tailored to the specific processor in your Mac?
