When you purchased your Mac, you probably wanted the best web browser offered, whether it be Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, or some other worthy candidate. After all, quality hardware should also contain quality software. There has been much controversy on what truly is the best browser available for a Mac. Some say that Chrome is, and always will be, the best ever.

Others believe that it’s easier to stay with the default browser because it offers more functionality to the OS. While this is true and I’m not going to attempt to change those believers’ opinions, there is more to the situation than just that. For instance, Chrome does offer more than plugins than Safari does extensions, but this doesn’t necessarily make the latter a weak and functionless application, it just makes it a bit less desirable.

If you’re interested in finding out what browser truly holds the best functionality, speed and other elements then please join in after the break for some information that should fulfill your desires.

“It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.”
- Steve Jobs

According to Walter Isaacson, these words were spoken by Steve Jobs regarding a new television that Apple is working on (reportedly not a set-top box like the Apple TV but a real television). Over the past couple of months the rumor mill has been overflowing with speculation and supposed proof surrounding this mysterious device.

The only thing that we know for certain at this point is that we currently have no way of knowing which rumors are true, which are pure fabrication and which are somewhere in between.

One of the most interesting points of speculation surrounding the Apple television (iTV?) is the timeline. Some say that the device is something that Apple is planning for the distant future, perhaps when the cost of displays comes down. Others see a 2012 release as imminent.

What do you think? Is this thing real? If so, will we get our hands on it in 2012? Cast your vote in the poll and explain your answer in the comment section below.

It’s time for another “Ask the Editor” post. A big thank you to everyone who sent in their questions, it’s always a pleasure to help out the awesome community of Mac users.

Today I’ll be offering some advice about providing remote tech support to your friends and syncing your contacts across machines. Read on and see if you learn anything new!

Earlier today we published an article containing over thirty great apps that you won’t find in the Mac App Store. This impressive selection of must-have software proves that despite the App Store’s wild success (100 million downloads), there are in fact several developers who either can’t get in due to the nature of their app or simply don’t want to distribute their apps through the App Store.

In today’s poll we want to know whether or not you’re completely sold out on the App Store as a user. Do you still find yourself downloading non-App-Store applications from the web or have you decide to stick to the official offerings filtered through Apple’s infamous review process?

Once you’ve voted in the poll, leave a comment explaining your answer. If you only download App Store apps, is it because it’s simply more convenient or do you like the fact that the apps are filtered through a review process? If you still download non-App-Store apps, do you think indie developers with great projects deserve more support? Are they being overshadowed by the App Store?

Do you love Mac apps? Are you always on the look-out for the latest and greatest software to work faster, be more productive, and enjoy your free time? Are you an awesome writer who can wield prose like a pro? You sound like the type of Mac expert that we’d love to have on our team!

We’re always on the look out for fantastic new writers across the AppStorm network, but we’re particularly wanting to find a few new contributors to Mac.AppStorm over the next few days. All our writing positions are paid, and we’ll work with you to choose apps to review and suggest article ideas.

If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you. Read our page on writing for us and register your interest here, and we’ll be in touch!

Should You Apply?

Before you shoot us an email, keep in mind that this is a writing position. We will only consider applicants who show experience in communicating their thoughts in clear, understandable language. If you don’t know the difference between a complete sentence and an incomplete one, this isn’t the job for you.

Great news, we’ve selected five winners to receive a free copy of Gradient.app! If your Twitter name is listed below, you’ll be receiving an email from the developer shortly.

For everyone else, thanks a bunch for entering and reading AppStorm. Check back soon for more awesome giveaways, next time that list could have your name on it!
