New to OSX - Browser Choice?

Hello all,

I am new to OSX, having just picked up one of the new 2013 Air's. My question is around browser choice - I have been a long time Chrome user on Windows, however I have been hearing a lot lately that the OSX version of Chrome is getting quite unstable. In addition, from various benchmarks and reviews I looked at before buying the Air, I see that Safari gets better battery life on OSX than Chrome or Firefox.

Does anyone have any advice (either hard data or just anecdotal) about OSX browser choice and performance?
