- Safari is incredibly more CPU efficient
This needs references and a benchmark so no one can dispute in what ways this is a trade off.
- Battery life is dramatically better if you use Safari vs Chrome
This is redundant. If Safari is more efficient, then this is patently true. If not, it’s patently false - it should be deleted IMO. I’ve already edited that out (and the CPU portion of the memory “beef”
- Incredible developer tools like Instruments (just enable the "Develop" menu)
This is incomplete. Chrome has dev tools, safari has dev tools - this might be a good answer, but shouldn’t be part of the question IMO.
- Safari fares much better in terms of security. Google Chrome is comparable to user-installed malware.
Needs references or an objective measure
- Excluding extensions that have security risks, Safari has a comparable list of available extensions.
I’m lost here what the point Bill is trying to stake out. Need help on that, but hopefully this critique is seen as wanting the question to live and get good answers, and not just being mean spirited. I mean what I say about Bill being positive and astute above, so I wanted to end with positivity so no one thinks I’m ranting here on anything but the first draft of this question.
