Chrome. Apple dropped the ball with Safari... but a lot of Mac users still use it.

It also helps that Chrome is an identical experience on the Mac and PC and I use them both daily.

I use Chrome on my Macbook Pro, can't stand the limitations Apple put on Safari.

NJ is wrong with the statement Chrome is identical on the Mac and the PC.

For some people there is a huge difference, the Menu bar is absent in the Windows version, see attached screen captures:

Safari with Firefox as a backup. I don’t want to give Google more of my meta data and web history than they already have.

Other: All of the above.

But usually 1. Safari, 2. Chrome, 3. Firefox. I don't use Firefox much any more though. It's just too outdated. Safari and Chrome are both very good. But I would probably recommend Safari over Chrome. Because it's better integrated with OS X, and it doesn't have all the Google spyware.

Yes, if you are still using IE, then I can see where Macs would be confusing for you.
