Chrome vs Safari: Which has better keyboard shortcuts for controlling Treehouse video and workspaces?

I use Safari as my regular browser - I'm on a Mac. I like it and would prefer to stick with it but I see a lot of comments about how Chrome is better for development. Can I do everything I want in Safari and just Chrome is .01% better? Most important, I really love keyboard shortcuts for stopping/starting video, switching windows, etc. Does Chrome have an advantage over Safari for that? (Also, what are the important shortcuts for controlling Treehouse video I should be aware of?)

Depends on what Mac do you have and what keyboard shortcuts you like more.

I would say Chrome, but that's because I was always using chrome and I am on Windows.

I would say they are equally good, people use Mac and Safari or Windows and Chrome or Firefox.

It's really up to you, what you would like to use.

Thanks John. I was worried that I would be forced to use Chrome, which I really hate the look of. I'll keep using Safari for now.
