Best Browser for OSX

I searched for a thread of this type but I didn't find one, so sorry if I missed it.
Like XP, there are many MAC OSX browsers out there including;

Safari
Internet Explorer
Firefox
Opera
Mozilla Navigator
Camino
Omni Web

I mostly use Safari but have began a trial of Firefox. I've also heard that Omni Web is really good, but its not free (what were they thinking?). I have an older mac (iBook G3 700) so performance is really important for me. Are there any browsers that I missed? What are your favorite(s)? and why?

I use Firefox, because I also use Firefox on my PC at work, and it is very nice to have both work exactly the same. I'm not sure what I'd be using if I didn't care about the cross-platform capabilities; probably Safari.

I like Safari over all others. I tried Firefox, but it just doesn't work as well as Safari does. Same with Camino. IE just blows ass on any platform.

I like Safari for MacOS and IE for Windows. IE sucks on Macs. Safari isn't much better but it gets the job done a hell of a lot better than IE on Macs.

Another vote for Safari here. It's quite stable and has pretty much anything the average browser needs.

I currently use Safari. Before Safari was polished I used Camino and Firefox, that was a while ago. I have not used Omniweb since they started using Webcore, the same engine as Safari. If you like Safari but want more options and customization, Omniweb might be worth a try.

Recently PCworld published a review of OSX browsers and Omniweb came out on top. Macworld also rated Omniweb very high, so I wondered if it was worth the price.
I like safari because it is really fast, but I wish there were more extensions like Firefox has on the PC. At least I haven't found many extensions. Most of the Firefox extensions don't work for OSX, and Firefox seems glitchy on MAC.

Geez, i wish you didn't say a G3 -700 is old. That's what I'm currently typing on...

Has anyone tried Omniweb? I use Safari and have very few complaints. I wish it had a few more preference settings.
