    downloading now :noes:


    Apple details the new features found in Safari 4:
    - Top Sites, a display of frequently visited pages in a stunning wall of previews so users can jump to their favorite sites with a single click;
    - Full History Search, where users search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages to easily return to sites they've seen before;
    - Cover Flow, to make searching web history or bookmarks as fun and easy as paging through album art in iTunes;
    - Tabs on Top, for better tabbed browsing with easy drag-and-drop tab management tools and an intuitive button for opening new ones;
    - Smart Address Field, that automatically completes web addresses by displaying an easy-to-read list of suggestions from Top Sites, bookmarks and browsing history;
    - Smart Search Field, where users fine-tune searches with recommendations from Google Suggest or a list of recent searches;
    - Full Page Zoom, for a closer look at any website without degrading the quality of the site's layout and text;
    - Developer Tools - built-in web developer tools to debug, tweak and optimize a website for peak performance and compatibility; and
    - Windows-native look in Safari for Windows, that uses standard Windows font rendering and native title bar, borders and toolbars so Safari fits the look and feel of other Windows XP and Windows Vista applications.

    ok, so no extensions, and it doesn't save tabs, but god damn, it's fast. the frequently used pages are nice, too. seems like they ripped it off of chrome, but it looks nicer in safari.

    You cannot install Safari on this volume. This update requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 or newer.

    looks like no real improvement for me.

    don't use tabs, don't use cover flow, don't care about browsing history, smart search = google...

    I've hated tabs since the beginning. I use Expose most of the time or just use Apple + ~ to move between windows if I need to. I immediately turn off tab browsing on any browser I use.

    This is how OT as a whole is. Instead of editing their most recent thread, they continue posting with 5 posts in 2 minutes. This is post whoring, which is a rule for OT, but isn't enforced like it should be. I guarantee you if the moderators enforced this, the post count for greater than half of the members would be significantly lower.
